10: To the C-Suite and Beyond with Leigh-Ann Stewart

In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, Aimee has an invaluable conversation with Leigh-Ann Stewart, a fellow CRSP. There is never an exact copy-and-paste career path in the Health & Safety world. As I’ve touched on in previous episodes (i.e. Episode 5), there’s a wide range of possibilities out there and you must decide which one […]

In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, Aimee shares how she takes control of her to-do list and manages her work-life balance.

Have you ever had your whole work day planned out, only to get a million things piled on you as soon as you step into work? It truly sucks when your planned, controlled, and confident day gets thrown into chaos, especially when you have no control over that chaos.

Tune in to today’s episode to discover what to do when other people’s requests and urgent to-do’s take over your to-do list. Hopefully, with these tips, you’ll be able to avoid the need to come in early, to work through your lunch, to not take any breaks, or to stay late.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How to keep control of your to-do list
  • Stephen R. Covey’s Time Management Matrix
  • Deciding what is urgent and what is important
  • The importance of consistently reinforcing your boundaries

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

“The reality is not everything is urgent. Not everything is important. I’m gonna say that again. Not everything is urgent. And not everything is important. Regardless of who is on the other end of that request.”

“You can’t just flat out say no. But it’s okay to say not today. It’s okay to say not right now. It’s okay to say maybe I’m going to redirect this task to somebody else who has the same skill set as I.”

You are important. Keep track of your time, track the tasks, requests, and prioritize based on your definition of urgency and importance. Say it with me. I am only one person and can only do so many things in a day. And that’s okay.

Quotes from this episode

“But it is very interesting, seeing how much my role impacts the health and safety of the people that are working in these locations, living in these locations. And I do take it very seriously because I think well if I mess up my sampling or if my results are inaccurate, then people living here could be in harm.” – Constanza Maass

“If we’re working in these environments that are posing risks to our health, we need to be in the appropriate gear. That’s the whole reason it’s there.” – Constanza Maass

“If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. And I’m not going to try and sell something that I don’t believe in. So I have done sponsored ads. And it’s usually gear that either I have already tried or that I was sent and tried for a long time.” – Constanza Maass

“I think a lot of us ladies that are in these environments where there aren’t a lot of us will go online to find others and to connect with others and to share those experiences. The bond is so much deeper for some reason when you know […] the experiences that they have at work…”  – Constanza Maass

In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, Aimee talks about something that’s instrumental to a successful Health and Safety Program: allies.

One of the most common factors for failure or setbacks when creating healthy and safe workplaces is isolation. Join me today as I share with you an anecdote about a safety advisor who has a problem: despite their efforts, safety wasn’t improving within the organization. Sounds familiar?

Through this story, I’ll touch on some essential questions you should consider as a health and safety practitioner or professional, and also some key concepts on how to create the change you need in your organization.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Health and Safety strategies in isolation do not work 
  • Change Agents and their importance for creating a healthy and safe workplace
  • How to identify your organization’s Change Agents
  • The different types of personal power and how to harness it for change

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

“Nobody likes to make mistakes. So we focus on the things that we feel confident in. But there is wisdom in every misstep that we take as professionals, as practitioners.”

“Yet the path to success is not always linear, you take one step forward, two steps back, a leap to the right, a stumble to the left.”

“They were trying to do it all by themselves. They were the one asking for change, they were the one writing new policies, they were the ones implementing new training requirements. They were working in isolation. But isolated strategies do not work.”

“I think it’s important to say that these people [leaders], you know, are not always management. They can be management, but a job title doesn’t make a leader.

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.
