|Your Role As A Safety Supervisor: May 2016
Have you recently been promoted to being the supervisor of your division? Being a supervisor is a rewarding experience that comes with many different levels of responsibility. A supervisor typically answers to company management but is also responsible for the development and operations of their team members. A supervisor is expected to discipline their staff in order to keep them focused and productive. Supervisors are also counted on to develop their employee’s skills. Wearing many different hats is common for someone who is in a supervisor role. However, do you understand your responsibility as a supervisor in regards to the safety of your employees?
You may not have the specific title of “Safety Supervisor”, however, the safety of your team is within your responsibilities. Regardless of how you came to be the safety man or woman, you will be setting the tone for the rest of your crew. Your crew, just like you, wants to go home to their family at the end of the day, safely in one piece.
Many employees have an interest in getting their job done correctly, because they take pride in their work and want to please their boss. Explain to your team that part of doing the job correctly is doing so without accidents or injuries. Make sure that your team understands that safety is more important than schedule. Make sure that safety comes first in every situation.
