The primary purpose of a modern supervisor working in hazardous operations is to organise, manage, support and develop the team’s ability to work safely. In order to effectively deliver on that primary purpose, we believe that the key actions of safe supervision are SHAPED i.e.,
- Seeking differing opinions.
- Hunting for hazards.
- Aligning goals and roles.
- Planning collaboratively.
- Executing mindfully.
- Developing individual and team capabilities.
These actions are not the exclusive domain of the supervisor. As the team must be actively engaged in the process, safe supervision should not be seen as something that is done to the team, but rather as a dynamic element of teamwork. The supervisor is accountable for the quality of supervision but every member of the team has a shared responsibility.
Just as good leadership develops, and is in turn dependent upon, good follow-ship, safe supervision creates and is in turn dependent upon good teamwork. Optimising each of the elements of SHAPED supervision requires every member of the team to be fully engaged, not just with the supervisor and other team members, but also with the action itself.
This knowledge will develop your understanding of how to create a safe system of work and supervision where the team is actively engaged in looking out for themselves and each other.
This webinar is focused on:
- Exploring a new definition of supervision and understanding the elements of ‘SHAPED’ supervision.
- Exploring ‘safe supervision’ as both a leadership role and a set of activities that the whole team engage with using the “Know, Say, Do” framework.
- Exploring how diversity and inclusion can enhance hazard hunts and discussions and planning.
- Understanding how to harness the positive effects and minimise the potential negatives of diversity and collaboration.
