Newest Addition to Our “10 Things” Safety Series

10-things-leadership-walkthroughsIt’s been a while since we’ve released an addition to our “10 Things” e-book safety series, so we’re pleased to announce our latest addition, “10 Things You Absolutely Must Know About Conducting Meaningful Safety-Leadership Walk-Throughs.”

Whether you call them site visits, management walk-arounds, leadership walk-throughs, supervisor engagements, or something else, it’s imperative for purposes of leadership and relationship-building that you spend a significant amount of time with your workforce in their environment.  But just visiting the plant, the line, the work site, or a field location in a random and unplanned way often results in missed opportunities to lead both personal safety and process safety.  There’s a better way, and this e-book defines what that is.

The e-book covers the gamut of skills and know-how required to turn your safety audits or management walk-arounds into intelligence gathering leadership engagements.
The “10 Things” collection is growing and we’ll steadily add more volumes to the series as needed.  Here are some brief descriptions of the other e-books available so far:

10 Things You Absolutely MUST DO  to Lead More Engaging Safety Meetings – $9.95 USD

Some are certainly better than others, but most could still stand improvement.  We’re referring to safety meetings and the way they’re conducted, in whatever form they may take or in whatever venue they may be held.  All too often, meetings are read, not led as they should be.  We are often far too tethered to our notes, our slides, our JSA forms, or our tailgate-meeting checklist to conduct a safety meeting that actually accomplishes the goal of raising safety awareness in the workforce.  So what’s the best way to conduct these meetings?  Here are ten tips on how to make your safety meetings more effective and engaging.
