RR292 - Different Types of Supervision and the Impact on Safety in the Chemical and Allied Industries

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.
