Supervisor Responsibilities and Due Diligence Training. Supervisors play an important role in promoting and maintaining workplace safety. Their words and actions demonstrate how they view and value health and safety. The supervisor's attitude influences how workers approach and practice safety on the job; to them the supervisor's attitude reflects the company's values. A supervisor is anyone who instructs, directs, and controls workers as they carry out their work tasks. This could include owners, managers, superintendents, charge hands, lead hands, foremen, department heads, journeymen, and trainers. Supervisors are well-positioned to be safety champions. Effective supervisors are intentional and purposeful in promoting health and safety.
Supervisors should perform regular safety activities, such as safety inspections, observations, accident and incident investigations, or crew safety talks. Other activities may be linked to annual departmental safety plans. Due Diligence is taking all reasonable care to protect the well-being of employees and co-workers. Employers and Supervisors in Washington State have certain health and safety responsibilities in the workplace to ensure the health and safety of their employees.
