Current Speaking Topics
Three Approaches to Reducing Serious Injuries & Fatalities
Over the last decade, there’s been a disturbing trend when it comes to safety. Recordable injury rates have steadily been declining but the rate of serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs) have remained flat or are increasing. Could “Zero Harm” initiatives be making this situation worse by diluting the focus of improvement strategies away from what really matters? This session will take a look at three different strategies for improving what is arguably an organization’s most important safety performance metric and discuss their effectiveness.
Leadership for Today’s Problems
A key issue many organizations face today is how their current safety management system will protect their employees 24/7—because the vast majority of injuries and accidental death occurs outside the workplace. Learn how to influence people to learn the critical error reduction techniques and awareness required to be safer 24/7.
