Frontline Safety Leadership
Veriforce’s Frontline Safety Leadership is an 8-hour training course designed to help new and existing field supervisors, foremen, and superintendents understand their worksite responsibilities regarding workers’ health and safety.
The modules presented in this course will provide knowledge on a supervisor’s legal and organizational obligations regarding worker safety and provide insight into handling several of the challenges and underlying factors that influence workers’ ability or motivation to work safely.
Students who serve as frontline leaders or future leaders will learn how to use various tools and better develop the skillsets needed to be a safety leader for their organization. This includes training on how to develop yourself as a manager and safety leader, how to assess yourself and your workers to improve communication, and how to delegate tasks, manage production, improve worker performance, handle workplace conflict, and ensure worker safety.
Frontline Safety Leadership has also been updated to focus on teaching leadership skills in class and providing the learner with the resources needed to implement these skills back at their worksite.
Upon successful completion of the course, students receive their Veriforce ID card. This card reflects Veriforce course requirements the student has met. Employers may verify student training on the IDcard or online at www.PECCard.com.
