Why is it important?

Management Commitment

When management leadership is supported by actions, workers know that safety and health are the utmost important to business success. This means that the steps they take to improve safety and health will be a valuable asset. Management provides the leadership, vision, and resources needed to implement an effective safety and health program

Senior management can demonstrate its commitment in many different ways, including:

  • Developing and communicating a safety and health policy statement.
  • Providing the resources needed to implement and operate the program.
  • Factoring safety and health into operational planning and decisions.
  • Recognizing or rewarding safety and health contributions and achievements.
  • Leading by example, by practicing safe behaviors and making safety part of daily conversations.
