Quality vs. Health and Safety Managers

Posted by Craig Thornton

In this video, we are going to hear from our approved Mango partners discussing a contentious question. That is: Do quality managers make better health and safety managers than health and safety make quality?

Watch the video to hear Founder of Mango, Peter Rogers explain why this may be the case, and listen to what the Mango Partners had to say.

Let us know, do you think quality managers make better health and safety managers, or vice versa? 

 

 

Takeaways 

Key themes across the responses:

  1. It's not about being a quality person, it is about being a manager. 
  2. It's not a one-size fits all answer.
  3. It's important to have the operational experience, whether it is from quality or not.
  4. Health and Safety professionals do sometimes more have the more personal touch with people. 
  5. It's not so much related to who they are, but whether they understand systems.
  6. You have to be careful when making sweeping generalizations. 
  7. Importance of integrating the systems - QHSE.
