When it comes to safety, leaders need to know how to contribute to WHS risk management and the processes for identifying work health and safety hazards and how to assess and control the risks, all in line with legislative WHS and organisational requirements.
Good communication and consultation is also key to minimising harm. The most effective leaders are those who know how to communicate with their people to build trust. To do this effectively they need the skills and knowledge to understand different communication contexts and personal styles and how to choose the methods of communication to suit their audience.
