Safety Leadership in Action

January 24 — 26, 2023
Northwest Public Power Association

Who Should Attend:

Frontline leaders, middle managers, top leaders, and emerging leaders.

Course Overview:

Most people understand that strong leadership is a leading indicator of a safe place to work. We know that leaders must do certain things every day to create the type of culture that produces safe behavior in employees. Safety Leadership in Action is a three-day leadership development course that consists of 20 sessions housed within five modules. The modules represent core concepts of safety leadership performance: leading a safety culture, effective communications, safety accountability, decreasing risk, and hazard recognition. The sessions provide detailed insight into those five concepts to enable you to understand the information and put it into practice immediately.

This curriculum is performance-oriented and focuses on the core behaviors you must demonstrate daily. It is designed to help you understand specifically what to do and how to do it to effectively influence the attitudes, beliefs, ideas, and behaviors of others so that everyone goes home safe every day.

Safety Measures:

As we continue to monitor and evaluate COVID-19 levels, we understand that the health and safety of our members, staff, and the community are of highest concern. We are asking everyone to do their part. NWPPA and local venues will follow applicable federal, state, and local health protocols. Assumption of Risk: COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. It is not possible for NWPPA or anyone else to completely prevent the presence of the disease. Therefore, if you choose to attend a conference organized by NWPPA and voluntarily enter onto premises where its conference is held, you are accepting the risk, without right of claim against NWPPA and its directors, employees, or agents, of being exposed to, contracting, and/or spreading COVID-19 and its variants.
