8:15 AM – Leader-Inspired Safety: Safety as the Conduit for Operational Excellence
Trinnie Cortez, Caterpillar Safety Services

Employees make choices every day on whether to work safely.  The most powerful influence on those choices is the leader, who must do certain things every day to create the type of culture that inspires safe behavior in employees. After five years of research, Caterpillar has learned exactly what those things are. To be an effective safety leader requires mastery of four core skills, or domains. These four statistically validated domains, along with fourteen elements of leader-inspired safety, are introduced in this dynamic presentation. Mastering these skills enable a leader to produce a strong culture of accountability, create meaningful connectivity with others, demonstrate credible safety consciousness, and build trust. The effective safety leader becomes an effective business leader.
