This is not just another safety course!

To change the safety performance across the sector we need highly capable leaders delivering great work outcomes and, as a result, great safety outcomes each and every day.

LeadSafe Supervisors takes participants on a learning journey that looks at safety differently – safety is not a “tick the box” exercise. We are challenging participants to shift your thinking from policy and compliance to effectively leading a culture of safety on site.

This means “walking the talk”, taking ownership and commitment to the next level to proactively lead safe on site – everyday.


What will you learn?

Safety leadership is about “what goes on when no one is watching”. The aim of this programme is to enable leaders to embrace a safety culture and what they do on site everyday to get great work outcomes and take the lead to ensure everyone on site is safe.

The two days gives supervisors skills to set the tone as a leader and to:

  • Walk the talk and have skills for role modelling the desired skills, safe attitudes and behaviours required on site – including with sub-contractors.
  • Develop good communication skills delivering effective and meaningful safety conversations.
  • Positively influence and rectify inappropriate behaviour.
  • Proactively assess “safety” risks and to drive safe attitudes and working methods in the workplace.
  • Effectively utilise the safety tools and systems (hazard management, risk identification and assessment, incident investigation) to get better work outcomes.
  • Clearly know their roles and responsibilities as a safety leader and be proactively involved in the management of safe on site, every day.

NZQA: 17601

The accident investigation course is delivered to meet NZQA’s criteria through using the ICAM model for investigation.

This course is delivered using our blended training model. The online module unit standard 17601 – Incident Investigation, is to be completed prior to attending your 1 day interactive in person training for ICAM methodology.

Did you know that?

  • Most accidents/incidents happen, due to organisations failing to learn or retain the lessons that should have been learned from previous accidents and incidents
  • Often witnesses memories become impaired due to the loss of time span or the information may become tainted or impaired
  • All workplace accidents/incidents should be investigated as soon as possible after the occurrence of either an accident or incidence

People credited with unit standard 17601 are able to: explain why workplace accidents need to be reported and investigated; explain the concepts of multiple causation and root-cause analysis; detail an incident investigation process using a hypothetical incident; and produce an incident investigation report based on a documented incident.
