How To Enhance Safety As A Supervisor

Sunday, November 12, 2023

Have you recently been promoted to the supervisor of your division? Being a supervisor is a rewarding experience that comes with many levels of responsibility. A supervisor typically answers to company management but is also responsible for the development and operations of their team members. Supervisors must discipline their staff to keep them focused and productive. Supervisors are also counted on to develop their employee's skills. Wearing many different hats is typical for someone in a supervisor role. However, do you understand your responsibility as a supervisor regarding the safety of your employees?

Responsibilities As A Supervisor

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 the safety of someone, you will set 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 and in one piece!

Many employees are interested in getting their job done correctly because they take pride in their work and want to please their boss. Explain to your team that doing the job correctly is doing so without accidents or injuries. Make sure your team understands that safety is more important than the schedule. Make sure that safety comes first in every situation.
