Leading Health & Safety as a Performance Lever (LHSP)

Leading Health & Safety as a Performance Lever: being people-centric in a transforming world


Leading Health & Safety as a Performance Lever (LHSP) is a pioneering 3-day CEDEP program that explores H&S leadership within large corporations in an ever-changing and uncertain world.  

The global pandemic accelerated emerging trends and triggered new risks in H&S but also new opportunities. It underscored the necessity of proactive thinking and preparation for the unknown – and this program is designed with that foresight in mind. While we cannot predict the future, we deeply understand that the fundamental principle of any strategy to ensure people’s safety will remain unchanged: we must put people at the centre and genuinely care for each of them.  

This program is dedicated to operational senior leaders and H&S senior managers, who will engage with various experts to identify trends of the new world, the impact on organisations and how to turn these challenges into opportunities to bring performance to a higher level. Participants will collaborate and define how to create an environment where H&S is truly lived as a core value and competitive advantage by management and employees. 

This pioneering and highly relevant leadership journey will enable participants to: 

·       Critically analyse the acceleration of our ever-changing world and the impact on H&S. 

·       Be people-centric leaders to embrace the new world. 

·       Develop a practical action plan with strategies to use H&S as a performance lever. 


This program encourages managers across all industries and sectors to reconsider their roles as H&S leaders. It fosters a collaborative environment for reflecting on enduring core principles and identifying potential future shifting dynamics to adapt accordingly.

The objectives of the program for participants are to:

· Gain a deeper understanding of future trends by exploring key industry, generational and leadership concepts.

· Embrace humility and authenticity by questioning our existing safety management and personal leadership practices, acknowledging that discomfort often accompanies learning.

· Transition to a testing mode by developing innovative action plans in two dimensions: 

o Me: Identify what I need to change as a leader to ensure I create an environment of trust and psychological safety, moving towards servant leadership. 

o My team: Implement actions that will bring the safety culture to the next level, be embraced by all generations, and prepare for future challenges. 

Learning journey

Leading Health & Safety as a Performance Lever program is divided into two parts, starting with refresher microlearning videos covering key learnings from Leadership Through Health & Safety Culture. 

Part 1 

Leadership is not about you, it is about the people 

We explore current trends in our fast-transforming world, industry 4.0, the needs and expectations of the various generations in the workplace, how they relate to H&S and how H&S can be used to unlock higher performance levels. 

Part 2 

Leadership is all about you 

We develop personal wellbeing and H&S leadership skills focusing on advanced emotional intelligence, peer coaching, identification of weak signals, psychological safety, trust and an introduction to the principles of Human & Organisational Performance (HOP). 

Throughout the program, participants develop a specific two-fold action plan with actions to pursue further personal development and bring the safety culture maturity to the next level in the organisation.
