We often hear people discussing making changes within an organisation; however in reality change is not always achieved to everyone’s expectations. The trouble is people often forget the basic differences between management and leadership. So to get down to basics, we have to understand the fundamental difference between HSE management and change leadership:
Management; is the functional process that
makes people and HSE systems work together. It involves
• Planning and budgeting HSE resources
• Control, risk identification and problem solving
• Organising and staffing
• Taking HSE legislation, procedures and systems and imbedding them into day to day operations.
Change Leadership; from a safety point of view
is a process of social influence, the sole aim is to maximise
the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a common
goal. A successful leader understands that;
• Leadership stems from social and group influence, not authority or power by title or position.
• Leadership requires others to follow; people do they don’t need to be under someone’s direct control or for that matter in the same company to follow a leader.
• Creating a realistic and sustainable HSE vision and strategy.
• Understanding that setting targets is not always the answer, A very common mistake made by organisations is setting accident frequency rates ”AFR’s” as a target, One tip, never do this, you will open yourself up to ridicule if you fail to meet the target.
• Motivating action by communicating, trust, respect, integrity, and sensitivity.
• Aligning people’s expectations, personal and business.
So why do we still have a problem with achieving positive change?
Most of the time, organisations are abundantly overstaffed with functional managers working in discipline silos, but lack a sufficient number of leaders to help them combat the needs of constant change in today’s business environment. Organisations must ensure they identify and utilise prospective HSE leaders who are able to meet challenges today as well as in the future. When a company exists without true leadership, it is unable to make any substantial change.

So, the only question that follows is that of how to make the right choice. Or more importantly still, are there really any differences between the thousands of firms on the market?
The answer sadly is yes…the differences are night and day, but siding with a provider that can be counted on needn’t be difficult and is more a matter of common sense than deep thought.
Right off the bat, there’s a big difference between a 100% dedicated PPE specialist and another that just also happens to sell PPE as a sideline. Given the importance of the products and in the spirit of securing a long-term partnership, no prizes for guessing which of the two makes more sense.
Next up, are the services offered by the supplier relatively limited to retail and promotion, or are they deeply and genuinely involved in the subject of workplace health and safety? Do they run an online store, or an online store that offers advice, blogs, news, tips and so on and so forth? Again, if looking for something long-term, the smart money is on the latter.
At one end of the industry there are PPE suppliers that sell products and nothing more, while at the other there are those that serve as valuable and comprehensive health and safety consultants for the businesses that depend on them. It’s simply a case of looking into the supplier’s readiness to give advice – is the firm nothing more than a glorified PPE vending machine, or can they be counted on to help and advise as and when required?
And rounding things off, if the firm under consideration has already been able to win over hundreds or even thousands of clients, this should be made irrefutably clear in their feedback. As such, check out said feedback which should be readily available and be sure to act in accordance with the facts.

President Obama is faced with the daunting predicament of keeping his campaign promises or maintaining a relationship with Canada. Obama must make a decision soon on allowing the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. This pipeline, if approved, will span 2,000 miles and connects Canadian oil sands to refineries in Houston and throughout the Gulf of Mexico. The proposed pipeline will reduce the United State's dependence on oil import and OPEC. Environmentalist disapprove of the pipeline because it will carry oil derived from toxic tar sands.
Obama may lose the support of the environmental groups he won over while campaigning for re-election. The approval of the pipeline would go against his environmental promises because of the carbon emissions caused by the production of tar sands oil. This decision may backtrack all of the environmental strides the President has made. For the Sierra Club and other environmental groups, they view the approval of the pipeline as a betrayal and a contradiction to Obama's promises to make the climate change a top priority of his second term.
Canada's government has stated that the country's economy, employment and national security will benefit from the Keystone project despite being widely protested by environmental groups. According to the New York Times, Canada has powerful allies in the United States labor movement, which is pushing for the pipeline because proponents say it would generate tens of thousands of jobs, and in big companies like Exxon Mobile and Chevron that are heavily invested in the oil sands fields. "The signal of a rejection of a permit by the president would be a significant change in the Canada - U.S. relationship," said Greg Stringham, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers' vice president for oil sands and markets.
Reuters sources say the decision may be delayed until June.
