Respect and leadership go hand in hand. It's a fundamental principle: To lead others, you first have to earn their respect. But it goes much deeper. Great leadership creates a climate of respect, an environment that sets high standards and supports everyone in doing their best.

Unfortunately, there are no short cuts to respect. It has to be earned and maintained and nurtured. But there are things you can do to make sure you're on track during the process. Here are some of the most important:

1. Set an example. Respect is circular. To earn it, you have to give it. The respect you show to others not only models how you'd like them to treat you and each other but also reflects your own self-respect. The principle of respect should guide your actions every day.

Workplace injury rates at all-time low in 2015: WorkplaceNL

Canadian Occupational Safety

Newfoundland and Labrador’s lost-time incidence rate has dropped to an all-time low of 1.5 per 100 workers in 2015.
The rate, which has held steady for the past three years, looks at lost time due to workplace injury or illness. The rate decreased in nine industries, increased in two industries, and remained the same in one industry.

To put it in context, the drop means there were approximately 200 fewer workers requiring health-care only assistance and 260 fewer workers with short-term claims in 2015 versus the previous year, WorkplaceNL reports.

Workers aged 15 to 24 years reported 1.4 lost-time incidents per 100 workers in 2015, a drop of 18 per cent from five years ago.


Also an area of concern is that violence in the workplace is on the rise in the province. Lost-time incidents related to assaults or other violent acts in the workplace rose by 69 per cent when compared to rates five years ago. The statistic works out to approximately 7.6 per 10,000 workers experiencing lost time due to violence in the workplace.
