This paper demonstrates how coaching can be used as an approach to improve organisational safety performance. Assets, technology, systems, processes and people are key ingredients in the safety fraternity. However, this paper focusses more on leadership involvement and employee accountability playing pivotal roles in organisational safety performance. It is leaders that make decisions on what assets to be procured, what technology to be used and what processes to be followed. The employees are the process owners and users of assets and technology.
