CEO Safety Leadership 360 Assessment

World-class safety leadership starts at the top and is about what a leader does, says and measures. The role of a CEO in safety leadership involves 8 key domains:

  1. Clarifying the vision and focus.
  2. Understanding that health and safety is an investment.
  3. Getting personally involved.
  4. Engaging my organisation.
  5. Recognising health and safety contributions and achievements.
  6. Managing the risk.
  7. Monitoring the right outcomes.
  8. Letting my people get on with it.

Leading Safety's CEO Safety Leadership 360 Assessment is an online assessment that provides CEOs with information on where their safety leadership currently stands, including their strengths and development opportunities, in terms of these 8 safety leadership domains.

A CEO completes the CEO Safety Leadership 360 Assessment and invites a group of respondents (people they report to, peers, direct reports, etc.) to also do so.

A confidential report is emailed to the CEO once all respondents have completed the assessment. This report identifies personal strengths and areas for development as well as suggested development practices tailored to that individual's safety leadership profile. A one-on-one feedback session is then held with a Leading Safety consultant to work through the report in detail and agree a personal development plan.

The CEO Safety Leadership 360 Assessment has been adopted by the Business Leaders' Health and Safety Forum, a coalition of business and government leaders committed to improving workplace health and safety performance in New Zealand. The Forum's focus is to make workplaces safer by growing world-class safety leadership.
