Safety and health leaders are always professional and should remember to maintain all confidences at all times. 12. See situations from all angles. There are always two sides to every argument, and safety and health leaders should be able to identify and understand both sides of the argument. Safety and health leaders should respectfully listen to all involved before rendering any decision. The safety and health leader’s decision-making process should include, in addition to careful listening, a complete and all-encompassing explanation of the reasoning behind the decision.

Given the passion and purpose most, if not all, safety and health l­eaders possess, safety and health leaders should “pick their battles” and gauge their individual level of intensity in order to maintain a constant and consistent safety and health message within the organization. This level of intensity may vary depending on the organization; however, a safety and health leader, as part of the overall managerial team, should maintain a clear, consistent, and constant safety and health message to each and every member of the managerial team and all employees.

Safety and health professionals should be prepared for managerial team members arguing that they do not have time for additional safety and health responsibilities due to other job responsibilities. Above all, change in and of itself can be a challenge within any organization. The status quo is being challenged, and team members can no longer point to the safety and health professional as being responsible for safety and health. Each and every team member must now look in the mirror and know that he or she is now responsible for safety and health within the organization, and furthermore that he or she will be held accountable for the achievement of acceptable safety and health performance.
