Different types of supervision and the impact on safety in the chemical and allied industries

FABIG Members: Log-in to access all FABIG resources

SUMMARY

Entec were commissioned to research into how the delivery of supervision affects health and safety performance, and to develop a method that allows organisations to assess their current arrangements and identify opportunities for improvement. The research has identified that many organisations have changed their team structures from traditional hierarchies with a single Supervisor, to 'flatter' organisations with Team Leaders and higher levels of self-management. Supervision is not an individual's job, but a management function delivered by one or more people within and/or external to a team.
