Do you ever find yourself feeling Novemberish? If so, we’ve got great news! This year SafeStart will host their first-ever Human Factors Conference on November 5 and 6 in Nashville, TN and it’s sure to give everyone in attendance a boost.
The event has a number of fantastic sessions on the agenda and an inspiring keynote speaker —Michael Abrashoff, a former navy commander and a bestselling author. His outstanding leadership turned one of the worst-performing navy ships and crews in the Pacific Fleet—plagued with awful safety performance, low morale, high turnover, and abysmal performance evaluations—into the best in the fleet using the same crew in just one year.
Abrashoff’s dedication proved that leadership matters in safety and performance, and that culture can inspire a huge change in any workplace. The insights offered in his keynote and throughout the SafeStart Human Factors Conference are invaluable and can help leaders learn how they may achieve the same results and success in their organizations.
The conference is a perfect venue for steering committees, leaders, trainers and safety staff to learn about human factors from thought leaders and subject matter experts. Attendees will also have a chance to participate in sessions covering topics including:
- roadblocks to human performance;
- the missing link of risk assessment;
- steering committee best practices;
- sustaining safety performance over time;
- overcoming challenges; and
- best practices.
This event is a unique opportunity to share best practices and learn to address your most common safety challenges by speaking to people who faced similar obstacles and hearing client success stories. A safety trainer bootcamp will also be available to those interested in improving their teaching skills.
The conference will take place in Nashville, at the Embassy Suites Murfreesboro on November 5–6. The full agenda, online registration and more detailed information will be published as soon as it becomes available.
