There is an increasing acceptance within the occupational safety and health profession that a knowledge of the law and compliance standards is not enough.
To succeed, an occupational safety and health practitioner needs to engage and influence at a leadership level. The role is increasingly collaborative, supportive, challenging and helpful - the characteristics of a coach.
Coaching to engage - An introductory guide aims to provide occupational safety and health practitioners with a basic understanding of the soft skill of coaching to enable them to engage others so that they can improve occupational safety and health outcomes. The guide includes a self-reflection tool for practitioners to consider their existing style and a framework for coaching to enable practitioners to get started on their coaching journey.
