    New guide to create better health and safety coaches

    New guide to create better health and safety coaches

    A new guide has been released to help health and safety workers to become better coaches.

    The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has released ‘Coaching for safety – An introductory guide‘.

    Helping coaches to engage

    The guide hopes to improve the coaching skills of health and safety practitioners so they can better engage others and help them improve occupational safety and health outcomes.

    To do this, the guide includes a self-reflection tool. This suggests practitioners consider their existing style and framework for coaching to enable them to get started on their coaching journey.

    Chartered IOSH Member Michael Emery, who helped develop the guide, said: “We believe that collaboration is key to an excellent safety culture.

    “It is the coaching skills of questioning, listening, empathising and building rapport which underpin this collaborative approach. Coaching skills are also essential to complement the safety and health professional’s technical knowledge, in order to help them be the best they can be.”

    Collaborative approaches

    Kate Field, Head of Information and Intelligence at IOSH, said: “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 and be effective, an occupational safety and health professional needs to engage and influence at all levels within a business.

    “The role is increasingly collaborative, supportive, challenging and helpful – the characteristics of a coach. This guide provides a first step on that journey.”
