Organisations need practitioners to be collaborative, supportive and helpful – all defining characteristics of coaching. They need practitioners who can work with managers and other duty-holders and support them in exploring their health and safety issues and problems in order to find the best, most practicable solutions for them.
Who Should Attend?
The IOSH Coaching for Safety course has been designed to equip practitioners with these highly developed skills to complement their technical knowledge and understanding. It’s a very interactive course based on a number of practical coaching skills sessions all involving real-life issues and problems the delegates bring themselves – there is no role-play.
The IOSH Coaching for Safety course covers key aspects of safety coaching including:
- Best practice coaching techniques
- Improving safety in the workplace through coaching
- The GROW model
- The attributes of effective safety leaders
On completion of the IOSH Coaching for Safety course delegates will be able to:
- Appreciate the value of coaching in the role of the safety practitioner
- Understand the attributes of a good coach
- Improve workplace safety through effective coaching
- Become familiar with the behaviours and techniques involved in active listening
- Understand, and have put into practice, the GROW model
- Understand the techniques used for remaining solution-focused
- Understand the attributes and practices of a ‘safety leader’
