How thinking differently can help you embed a safety culture

Leadership is a vital component of a safety, health and environment process, but it is all too easy for business leaders to concentrate on operational issues at the expense of engaging on safety matters. It is also widely understood that good occupational safety and health is good for business. So how can practitioners encourage business leaders to lay the foundations of a safety culture in their workplaces? The SHE Show helps to answer this fundamental question.

Encourage effective leadership in safety, health and environment

Strong leadership in health and safety is based on management behaviours that clearly show that health and safety is a priority, and that management is willing and able to get involved. Effective communication right across an organisation is a key signal to staff that management supports a rigorous approach to safety. Our speakers, at The SHE Show South, Gerard Hand and Dan Terry delve into how this can be achieved by encouraging the leader in all of us and developing meaningful two-way communications.

Develop a culture of measurement, awareness and accountability

Poor workplace safety and health has a significant impact on people and businesses. Safety professionals are passionate about making a difference, but how well do current safety management practices fit the 21st Century business environment? A focus on behaviours, backed up with accurate and timely information, can help develop a culture of safety awareness and accountability. This can provide the basis for improved business performance and profitability. Martin Ballard and Neil Sheehan present new ways to look at safety management.

Champion prevention by looking at past events and current practices

The risks in a business can be better understood when there are practitioners involved in safety management at all levels of an organisation, and information regarding past events can help improve safety in the present. Paul Mahoney speaks first-hand at The SHE Show South about a life changing accident at work and its physical, psychological and social impact. Bruce Sutherland looks at the realities of leadership, targets and bureaucracy in today’s world and Mark Scoggins will underline the folly of ignoring near misses.

The SHE Show brings together top safety, health and environment influencers in a series of engaging talks and the best suppliers of products and services in the industry. The SHE Show South, Milton Keynes, will give delegates the opportunity to see and hear the tools that help to build a lasting safety culture in the workplace.
