Over the years I have come up with several of my own safety and leadership quotations that I have used in either in conferences, meetings or training sessions. Sometimes you can say just a few words and the message sticks with people for the rest of their lives. I have put below a few of my favourites that I have had success with when trying to make people accept their responsibilities and actual become actual leaders.
"Good leaders are those who know how to motivate and challenge people at all levels of an organization to achieve their best performance. In addition they support and provide the resources necessary to ensure it is possible to meet the goals that have been set”.
“No one cares how much you know about safety, until they know you can add to their success”
“ If you want to be a safety leader you must have innovation to succeed”
“I may not be a financial director, but I can help reduce your financial loss”
“If you don’t consider safety part of your leadership strategy, then you’re in the wrong job”
“A company director who thinks safety is a costly overhead should resign at the first opportunity”
“Only a fool would take a risk that would lose money or cause personal injury”
“You can’t say cutback on safety, and build a successful business in the same sentence”
“Real leaders know when to motivate and when to stand up for change”
