Colorado Springs Utilities remains committed to developing an organizational “Incident & Injury Free Culture”. As leaders transitioned from monitoring lagging safety indicators to developing leading safety measure/indicators we quickly realized that our end goal of an injury free culture required a more holistic viewpoint. Many questions were raised such as; “How do you … engage employees in solving their safety issues, share safety ideas, define accountability, solicit ideas, reward safe behavior?” Springs Utilities is developing a safety leadership program which makes every employee a “safety leader”. This paper focuses on the management aspects of being a safety leader.

Keywords: Safety; accountability; attitude; culture; development; employees; individual; leadership; rewards
