I do not understand WHY leaders chose not to support safety.  It is a proven fact that organizations with superb safety programs and outstanding safety results have better operating metrics (scrap, productivity, etc) than those organizations that don’t.   In other words – if you can get safety right, you will get everything else right.

Is it that leaders do not understand safety?   Is it that leaders do not see value in safety?  Is it that leaders think safety is a waste of time?   Is it that leaders think safety takes too much time?    Or is it a combination of all of these items?   As leaders, we have an obligation to provide a safe workplace to all of our employees.    Certainly leaders who chose not to support safety, chose not to take their obligations seriously.   Leaders need to understand that safety can be their key to driving world class results – if you can get safety right, you will get everything else right.

There was an old business saying that is very applicable here – “If you can’t change the leader, change the leader”.    If leaders chose not to support safety, it’s time change the leader.    WHY?   Because safety is the most important aspect of any organization!
