Occupational Safety & Health (OSH) Practitioners know about the law and the standards that need to be achieved and they often have experience of how other organisations have solved problems. This is the knowledge and understanding OSH Practitioners bring to a conversation and they are prized for it.
Supporting colleagues (or clients) to find the best way forward, requires more than technical knowledge alone. Finding solutions that the team can buy into and own, and manage for themselves, requires the collaborative abilities of a coach.
In coaching for safety, it’s about having “safety conversations” as part of safety implementation. Coaches tap into what those around them know and understand about what is going on and what is possible and it's this kind of collaboration that ensures that solutions really are the best that can be achieved collectively.
Coaches deploy their skills to help their colleagues and clients access their personal resources – their knowledge, their experience and the understanding they have about what’s happening and what is possible – with a view to supporting them to make their own better decisions about how to overcome obstacles and move forward. Coaches exist to be collaborative and supportive and to help others perform better.
It is not just about helping you develop coaching skills. IOSH Approved Coaching for Safety can be a stand-alone course but it can also be the first step in an extended programme of support where the goal ultimately is to build a better culture.
