In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, Aimee is providing some important tips to help you set the right SMART strategic goals.

If you’re not familiar with SMART as an acronym, it is a tool to help us set strategic goals. A SMART goal is simply a Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound goal.

I see SMART most commonly used within the Health and Safety management system, in inspections and investigations. As an auditor, I see that SMART is indeed being used, but it is rarely used well.

So, today let’s go in and break down what SMART actually means in more detail and give you the tips and questions you need in order to create better SMART strategic goals.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Attainable or Achievable
  • Relevant or Realistic
  • Time-Bound
  • Connect your SMART strategic goals to the larger corporate goals

The Transmit Safety Podcast is here to help health and safety practitioners achieve a holistic approach to workplace health and safety so they can become impactful leaders and put the value of safety into action.

Quotes from this episode

“I also use the smart, specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound acronym when doing strategic planning. So, not only from a reactive standpoint but from a proactive standpoint.”

“When you’re creating these smart goals, it’s absolutely not in isolation. You’re bringing in those key stakeholders from all levels of the organization[…], you might even need to be bringing in suppliers and contractors, maybe even your clients.”

“If you’re getting resistance from senior management, remember that businesses are in business to be in business, and creating your Health and Safety management goals. Connected to the larger corporate goals can be very impactful.”

In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, join Aimee and Ashley Mckie to learn all you need to know about mergers & acquisitions as a Health & Safety practitioner.

Businesses are in business to be in business, and pursuing mergers and acquisitions is one of the strategies that businesses can take to achieve that. 

So, as Health & Safety practitioners, it’s important to be aware that this is a possibility when working in an organization and that it will be our role to integrate and include the new business in the parent company’s Health & Safety program.

To help you better navigate mergers & acquisitions (M&A), Ashley Mckie who is the Director of Safety for Venturis Capital Corporation, a company that only recently made M&As a big part of their business, shares all about her experience with them, the lessons she learned along the way, how she got to where she is today, and some truly valuable advice for Health & Safety practitioners who are isolated and don’t have a Health & Safety team in their organizations.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Ways you can keep up with legislation across multiple jurisdictions
  • How the Health & Safety team can add value to the M&A process
  • The key role of relationship-building for successful acquisitions
  • Health & Safety programs and policies can and should be simple, accessible, and user-friendly
  • Ashley’s advice for Health & Safety practitioners navigating M&As
  • The importance of nurturing and growing both your professional development and that of your team members 
  • Ashley’s advice for Health & Safety practitioners who don’t have a team

The Transmit Safety Podcast is here to help health and safety practitioners achieve a holistic approach to workplace health and safety so they can become impactful leaders and put the value of safety into action.

Quotes from this episode

“So when we’re going into an acquisition, obviously, no amount of reassurance will override human nature, to be worried about change.”

“You never want your policies to be so complicated that somebody has an immediate resistance to it.”

“If you don’t take care of the people, it’s really hard to take care of the rest of the business.”

“In order for you to step up, you need to bring somebody with you. So, for you to level up, you need to help somebody else level up and take over the skills or the tasks that you were currently doing.”

We're here to have authentic conversations about what it's really like to be an HSE practitioner - the good, the bad, and all the situations in between.

we get really really real.

Pour a cuppa because we're about having transparent conversations.

it's like chatting with a Friend.

It's a different mindset approach for practitioners seeking to plug into a network of SME's.

not your average HSE podcast

What you'll find on the podcast:

Sure, I could start by telling you my work history, my educational background, but really (I think) the most important part of listening to a podcast is getting to know the host, finding out what's important to them, and hearing if the vibe is right.

So hi! I'm Aimee — a CRSP and CHSC. And, I'm here to help you simplify and streamline health & safety management systems.

I drink on average four cups of coffee a day; spend way too much time on social media, and enjoy spending time with my dog Reggie. 

Most importantly, I love to have conversations about workplace health & safety. So join me in transmitting health and safety on all frequencies.
