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.

Featured speaker is Gary Phillips, BEd, MA, CRSP, CHRP. Phillips is the manager, principle trainer, and consultant of Northwest Training and Development. An experienced organizational development consultant and safety professional, he is involved in a variety of training projects and consulting assignments. He has served on the Board of Governors of the Association for Canadian Registered Safety Professionals and in various chapter and provincial offices of the Canadian Society of Safety Engineering.

Phillips taught occupational health and safety as a sessional lecturer at Lakehead University for 12 years. He is the principal trainer of trainers world wide for Dr. David Imrie's Back Power program and is a Master Practitioner and Licensed Trainer in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). Most recently, Phillips has been providing personal and executive coaching services to individuals and businesses. In 2008 he published "The Art of Safety," integrating 30 years of leadership, safety, and advanced communication experience into one volume.
