AIHA Offers Advanced Communication Techniques TeleWeb
The American Industrial Hygiene Association® (AIHA) will host "Mastering the Art of Safety: Advanced Communication Techniques," an intermediate TeleWeb Virtual Seminar, on Oct. 27, 2009, from 2-4:30 p.m. ET.
The "Art of Safety" goes beyond the science of occupational safety to the heart of "how" professionals and leaders in organizations essentially receive the safety performance and the programs they deserve.
The focus is on how people experience our organization: by the way we communicate verbally and nonverbally, and how we presuppose unintended messages that may be damaging to our programs. Practical techniques immediately applicable in the workplace will be offered, including how to: address safety culture and operationalize safety values, evaluate due diligence, effectively deliver negatively perceived messages, and associate your programs with positive expectations.
