When Leaders don’t lead...
Employees don’t follow.
This is especially true with regard to health, safety and injury prevention. Leaders constantly communicate priorities and strategies to their workers, whether they intend to or not.

With additional responsibilities in today’s competitive economy, supervisors and employees alike are multi-tasking more than ever before and often struggle to successfully prioritize their time or balance workflow, for their own health and safety. This often results in employees rushing or failing to complete their tasks in a safe manner, taking shortcuts and increasing the risk of becoming injured. AE training modules teach leaders and employees why and how to plan, prepare and execute for success, every day and during every task.
AE has surveyed thousands of workers over a multi-year period. "Common subjective responses include a lack of time to complete their duties." To prevent injuries and illnesses, leaders and supervisors must engage employees and play a continuous role in changing and reinforcing employee perceptions, habits, skills, behaviors and mindsets.
Prior to receiving AE training, even in companies with excellent leadership practices, the average workforce efficiency rating remains at only 25-35%.

AE Leadership & Supervisor Development (Train-the-Trainer) courses ensure that managers and supervisors become "effective" injury prevention leaders.
The AE leadership training process teaches leaders and supervisors how to recognize and measure the leading indicators of risk, plus how to engage employees in order to control risk and eliminate at-risk behaviors and postures. This is accomplished by developing constructive intervention skills and by increasing daily involvement and positive communications around the real health, safety and prevention issues that challenge approximately 80% of the average workforce, in a meaningful way.
