Interpersonal skills an essential tool to drive health and safety performance
8th May 2018
While most people at work possess the technical skills required for their role, many lack the softer 'people' skills to effectively engage with, influence and motivate others. By developing these interpersonal skills, they will be better placed to encourage safe and healthy behaviours among the workforce and help to drive up health and safety standards.
Recognising this skills gap, the British Safety Council has developed a one-day workshop, Interpersonal skills to drive health and safety performance, to provide learners with practical skills that can be used in the workplace to enhance their performance when interacting with others.
There are two versions of the workshop; one aimed at health and safety teams and the second targeted at managers and supervisors. Each topic is introduced using real-life examples of problems and challenges commonly experienced by health and safety professionals. Learners are also encouraged to share their own experiences (good and bad).
