8:30 am - 10:00 am Leveraging Safety Leadership: Getting Multiple (Great) Results at the Same Time

Safety leaders have to deal with many issues simultaneously—monitoring, investigating, paperwork, budgeting, and so much more. But the right approach can leverage many returns through the right, smart actions—strengthening culture and reducing injuries, elevating engagement and communications, and preventing common, related injuries at the same time. This especially applies to sizably reducing two of the most common types of injuries in many companies: soft-tissue injuries and slips/trips/falls.

Robert will show how many companies have been able to accomplish “different” great results by applying a simultaneous leadership approach to safety performance and culture, and how you can do this as well.

10:30 am - 11:30 am Understanding Human Factors and the Impact on Safety

We design our workplaces with the most well-intentioned efforts to improve safety, yet incidents still occur. We need to look beyond the standards, the controls, the safety policies, and safety training…we need to look at ourselves as humans and know that number one, we are far from perfect and number two, our emotions and what goes on in our every day lives can impact our day in a positive or negative way.

In this session Carly will discuss the different states of mind, our habits and the impact they have on our behavior. We will also discuss management’s role. As a leader, how do your actions motivate your employees? What are the ways in which you can support your employees by recognizing the different states of mind? Finally, how do we put it all together and where do we apply it?
