Stephen Jenkins, MSc, Director, Safety and Health, Cintas Corp.
When will we have a truly COVID-free workplace? Who really knows? What we do know is that we currently have a COVID-altered work world and it will likely be an endemic that we deal with in the foreseeable future. The skill sets embedded in transformational safety leadership (TSL) are more critical than ever in achieving worker engagement essential in this altered COVID work world. The concepts and principles of TSL will be presented, followed by the real-world application and resultant best practices in a COVID work world. No smoke and mirrors here. This session will discuss how moving past prescriptive safety and health and employing TSL to engage the heads and hearts of your employees will improve your enterprise’s chance of maintaining healthy employees and avoiding potential operational devastation due to COVID.
