OH&S Executive Summit Keynote Announced

Robert PaterKeynote Address
Tuesday, October 7
8:30 AM – 9:30 AM
Next Level Executive Safety Leadership: Inspiring Culture and Performance
Robert Pater, Managing Director, STRATEGIC SAFETY ASSOCIATES, INC.

Learn how, through highest-level safety leadership, executives can energize employee engagement, reduce losses, boost trust, heighten receptivity, impact health care costs, and elevate overall performance. Attaining these results means aligning staff motivation, communications, leadership, and daily actions toward the desired direction.

Safety culture encompasses what your employees believe about safety within your organization and how they conduct themselves, even when no one is watching. To achieve and sustain high-level safety performance, it is critical to send strategic messages, transfer critical skills, and reinforce these skills consistently.

Albert Einstein wrote, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." Doing more of the same actions is unlikely to lead to breakthrough results, and Mr. Pater’s presentation will focus on proven time-leveraged strategies for catalyzing significant improvements in safety performance and culture. It will address how to identify the four stages of safety cultural development and how to develop insight into strategies for moving to a next-level safety culture.

This address will provide an “Executive Do's and Don'ts” for motivating safer actions and personal safety responsibility--even among minimally-supervised and "difficult to reach" workers.

Robert Pater is Managing Director of Strategic Safety Associates Inc. of Portland, Ore., and MoveSMART. His company has provided safety culture and best practices consulting services and training to major corporations in more than 63 countries worldwide. He is author of Leading from Within: Martial Arts Skill for Dynamic Business and Management and has written articles published in esteemed journals such as Nation's Business, Professional Safety, Occupational Health & Safety, HR Magazine, Training, and more. Mr. Pater has an MA in Industrial Psychology and presents frequently at conferences and events including the American Society of Safety Engineers' Annual Professional Development Conference and Expo, the National Safety Congress, and now OH&S’s Executive Safety Summit.
