Fulton Hogan Hiways (FHH) company managers have been provided specialised training to enhance their leadership skills

For the first time in Fiji, 17 FHH road maintenance managers attended a special safety leadership skills training programme that was facilitated by top Fulton Hogan New Zealand training specialist Rob Caroline.

Mr Caroline said that the course focus was on leadership within the context of safety and improving how leaders viewed safety.

“The idea of the programme is to get people thinking about what they do and how they can improve upon this,” Mr Caroline said.

“This so they can think about different ways they can approach their teams, different ways that they can apply processes and procedures and different ways they can engage and motivate their teams to think more about health and safety.

“The response from here has been exceptional.

“We are seeing an extremely positive level of engagement and a high level of  respect and values that people have here.”

The managers will receive certificates once they complete the post-course assignment.

“Further, Fulton Hogan Safety Leadership training for the wider leadership group is planned for July/August this year,” according to  FHH manager health and safety John Tinsley.

He added that the specialised leadership programme was designed for leaders identified within the company and was the next step in the ongoing development of FHH junior managers’ leadership skills.

More than 1000 Fulton Hogan staff in Australia and New Zealand have completed this course since it was introduced in 2009.
