This month I want to offer seven strategies for improving safety-related conversations between people. Conversation, as I discussed last month, is a powerful tool that shapes personal and team attitudes about loyalty, commitment, support - and safety. Each of these seven techniques can get employees more involved in safety, and improve your overall level of workplace safety performance.
Applying these methods can also improve how you talk to yourself - your "self-talk." The payoff? Increased self-esteem and perceptions of empowerment, which are essential for increasing our willingness to actively care for the safety and health of others.
