As an EHS manager, one of your primary goals is to promote a culture of safety within your organization. This can be a challenge, as you need to not only gain buy-in from upper management, but also empower your workforce to take ownership of their safety.
One way to build credibility and buy-in is to pursue credentials as in certifications. These demonstrate your commitment to safety and give you the knowledge and skills needed to effectively promote a culture of safety.
Another key strategy is to empower your workforce. This can be done by providing training on safety topics, involving them in the decision-making process, and encouraging them to take an active role in promoting safety within the organization.
By taking these steps, you can build credibility and buy-in for the EHS profession within your organization.
