Course Description: Foundations for Safety Leadership is a half day course that provides construction industry workers the foundation necessary for continuous leadership and communications improvement through interactive real-world scenarios designed to teach skills through role playing and practice. Originally conceived and developed by the Center for Protection of Worker Rights (CPWR), outreach trainers, construction workers, safety and health professionals and leadership and safety climate specialists, this program has been adopted as a 2.5 hour elective in the Construction Outreach Training Program, and as a stand-alone leadership techniques course for the work force that fulfills a long-standing need to provide leadership skills training. The qualities of an effective leader are sometimes perceived to be intuitive, yet through education and practice, workers can develop or improve skills to support the pursuit of safe, healthy, productive, quality driven outcomes.
