Management Techniques for Regulatory Compliance

You are here


A 2-day course designed to provide Managers and Supervisors with the skills and techniques of effective safety management.

Are you hearing the message that is being sent by recent safety legislation and regulations? The pressure is on for management compliance as well as technical and legal compliance. OSHA and EPA regulations are targeting management and management decisions for punitive action. "Be a manager-go to jail" is a real concern for many of American managers these days.

This 2-day seminar is designed to help assure compliance and, as an added bonus, to improve your total operation through enhanced management and supervisory skills and behaviors. It provides to managers and supervisors the proven, practical techniques they can use to secure from subordinates the performance necessary to obtain and maintain compliance with regulatory requirements.

"Secrets" of safety professionals are presented to help managers understand human behavior and to provide an appreciation of the need for managers to take action.


Participants will gain the ability to be able to:

  • Identify specific accountabilities for safe performance in the operating environment ... without specific accountability you will have no assurance of safe performance
  • Describe the current trend through legislation and regulations towards increased management accountability
  • Send the right signals to create an environment that significantly increases the priority level of safe performance and behavior
  • increase the value and results from safety training, applying little known management techniques to developing safety skills among subordinates
  • Describe and apply the concepts of risk management in daily decisions
  • Apply the concept of empowerment as a technique for increasing flexibility and immediacy of response to risk conditions



This course has no prerequisite.


You will receive a course binder containing a copy of the presentation slides.
