A positive safety culture is comprised of many things, one of the most important being a leader. A safety leader, commonly referred to as a safety coordinator, is the individual who is in charge of action items and facilitates change.
In many companies, the safety coordinator is the general manager or a member of the senior management team. However, many businesses have found success when selecting a safety coordinator who works closely with employees who work on the shop floor. These individuals often are service, body shop, or HR managers.
The assigned safety coordinator is tasked with managing and improving the safety culture on a day-to-day and month-to-month basis. The responsible individual coordinates meetings, deadlines, and action items in an effort to determine that every employee has a safety assignment and is held accountable for the results.
