Do you lead by example?
No matter what level you stand at within a company, your actions and practices may influence someone else’s.
It is important that everyone within a company follows the expected practices and procedures that have been laid out.
If someone is seen to be leading by example, no matter their level within the company, others are likely to follow.
However, having a management team who lead by example is vital. It reinforces that fact that health and safety standards should be met, and practise must be followed by everyone within the company, with no exceptions.
This can lead to a safe, happy workforce who understand that no one is immune to workplace hazards; creating an environment where people work together to ensure standards are being met, and feel safe and able to correct unsafe behaviour and practices carried out by anyone within the company.
