Safety Leadership Forum

Safety Leadership Forum


SAFERi Leadership involves 6 actionable practices – Speak about safety, Act safely, Focus on safety, Engage in safety practices, Recognize safety behaviors, and identify and manage safety risks.

AWARE-NS successfully held several SAFERi leadership training sessions this past year and, as a follow-up to these SAFERi sessions, we are hosting a Safety Leadership Forum. The Safety Leadership Forum will:

  • Share of results of the self-assessments completed during SAFERi sessions
  • Celebrate the launch of the ‘Leader Safety Playbook’ and other tools, developed by Davis Pier / WCB NS, in consultation with sector partners, focused on fostering a ‘Safety for All Culture’ within the LTC, HC and DSP sectors
  • Share experiences and success stories about ‘Peer Partners’ and goal setting processes
  • Include guest and keynote speakers to support the SAFERi Program themes
  • Launch the ‘360-assessment tool’ which encourages leaders’ prioritization of worker safety and continuous improvement

By prioritizing safety goal setting and integrating the SAFERi leadership style to leaderships’ day-to-day routines, we can work together to create a safety culture for organizations across Nova Scotia.
