Culture Training for Site Supers, Forepersons, and Union Business Managers:
Are you ready to improve site safety and productivity?
It starts with culture.
As a leader working closely with tradespeople on BC worksites you have a vital role to play in creating and maintaining a positive worksite culture. Your ability to address any issues that may arise on-site is crucial for your project’s success.
Site supers, forepersons, and union business managers are often the first point of contact for workers experiencing challenges on-site and are important role models for their crews. The examples they set telegraph the values, attitudes, and behaviours expected on site.
Builders Code training will show site leaders practical ways to build a positive crew culture. They will learn why hazing, bullying, and harassment can be as dangerous as physical hazards, and how to spot the early warning signs.
Builders Code training takes participants step-by-step through a suite of useful tools to show site leaders practical and effective ways to tackle old-fashioned behaviours and negative patterns, and ensure everyone on the worksite is safe, protected, and working to their full potential.
In our full-day-equivalent virtual workshop, you’ll explore the benefits of a positive worksite culture and the nature and impact of unacceptable conduct, learn how to enable and encourage positive behaviour, and how you can help lead change.
Participants will break into small peer groups to discuss real-life examples, like what to do when one crew member persists in bullying new apprentices, or when racist symbols appear on the job site.
Sessions are scheduled in multiple short segments over one week to make digital learning more engaging and are capped at 12 students to encourage participation and make sure everyone has a voice.
Choose between a three- or five-day schedule. Each participant will receive a set of digital materials and sample policies to keep and will be personally connected with a local Builders Code Advisor for optional post-session support at no additional cost.
