How do your employees think about safety? Is it just a policy they have to follow? Something that’s just part of the job? Or does it go beyond that?
A great indicator of the way someone thinks about safety is whether they view it as internal or external to them. If all they think about safety is that it’s a compliance regulation they are supposed to follow and enforce, then safety will be just another thing that is externally imposed upon them. They may not mind doing it – but it’s someone else’s idea, not their own.
