The Safety C.O.A.C.H. ( Coaching the 7 Safety Habits )
The Safety C.O.A.C.H. forms part of the 7 Safety Habits Process. The aim is to assist with coaching, during and after the implementation of the 7 Safety Habits. However The Safety C.O.A.C.H. can also be used as a stand alone training program.
The course uses a basic coaching model that may be considered the"foundation of coaching". The premise is that we are all, in some way a coach to someone. We have developed a coaching style over the years that may be working very well or maybe creating some difficulty. Our aim is to review a new model and evaluate our own coaching technique.
The C.O.A.C.H Model:
The goal of any coach. It all starts with a consistent approach to coaching and that is where the model begins. At the end of the day everyone should be familiar with the model and able to assist their fellow employee or use the techniques off the job.
Everyone should be a safety coach.
How do you coach your co-worker? How do you coach a contractor? How do you coach a new employee? Looking after each other is one of the basis foundations of safety, the coaching model helps by providing simple tools that anyone can employ.
The Safety C.O.A.C.H. Training Program (1 day)
The Safety C.O.A.C.H. Training Program consists of two parts:
1. Theory: We walk through the C.O.A.C.H. model spending time on each element to ensure each participant understand the model and its application on and off the job. We conduct a 4 hour workshop using group exercise , roll play and a Safety C.O.A.C.H. Workbook.
2. Practical: In the afternoon we use small groups to coach people in the field. The exercise needs to be set -up before the training begins to ensure each team member get an opportunity to practice the techniques discussed in the morning session.
Debrief: At the end of the session the class is back together for a debriefing session to review the days activities.
Additional time may be required depending on the class size. Recommended 10 participants.
