It is the responsibility of employers to provide a safe and healthy environment. But an employer is more successful when there is effective coordination with the management team, employees, contractors, vendors and regulators. Everyone agrees that safety is important and companies prioritize large sums of money to provide a safe environment, but accidents still occur. What is actually understood about safety? What are the hidden input drivers that cause accidents?

 

Until now, the unspoken or hidden mindset about safety is that it takes too much time, costs the employer money and makes you less competitive even in companies that are doing “everything they can”. Learn how this hidden mindset actually hurts productivity, brings harm to people, and prevents positive change from occurring. You will also learn how Innovation Scientific’s “Safety as a Science” innovation project is redefining the role of safety and has taken ethical responsibility to a new level. This approach is designed to advance safety, ethics, profit, schedule, jobs and OSHA priorities without compromise.

 

In this informative and dynamic session you will learn from Scott Burr, Principal at Innovation Scientific, LLC about a new approach to safety that makes safety the center point of process improvement, excellent decision-making and ethics while also improving the bottom line.

Who Should Attend:

Safety Engineers, Early Career Engineers, Entrepreneurs, Technical Professionals,

Technical Supervisors, Faculty, Engineering Students, and Engineering Managers.

This event is targeted for engineers and technical professionals at all stages of their career.
