Site safety managers in remote areas (e.g. fly-in fly-out professionals) are now earning more than their city based national managers according to the latest safety salary survey produced by SafeSearch.
A significant proportion of businesses are still reporting difficulty in recruiting “quality candidates” despite increased availability of people due to the slowdown of the mining sector. So if you are a ‘good professional’ – you are in demand – and if you are not in demand, then you may not be as good as you think you are.
Premium packages are being offered to candidates with superior communication skills according to SafeSearch.
So if your management team don’t listen to you or accept your advice, your communication skills might need sharpening up.
If you want to accelerate your career, Safety Action conducts Safety Leadership courses which focus on effective communication and motivation techniques.
