(Also scheduled for Mawson Lakes 1st and 2nd December - see separate event)
Safety Professionals are uniquely placed to influence organisational performance by applying Organisational Development/Psychology principles to achieve improved safety and business performance.
Safety Culture Development Workshop for Safety Professionals, is a practical, 2-day workshop designed to support Safety Professionals contribute to their business unit's success by applying Organisational Development/Psychology principles to achieving safety outcomes
Safety Professionals are often personally driven to make a positive difference for people at work. Sometimes this feels like a thankless task, in particular with so much focus on technical compliance. However, as the work of Safety Professionals exposes them to all aspects of a business unit’s operations, they are well placed to use safe operations to influence the business unit oversall.
This workshop has been designed to support workplace safety professionals to achieve this outcome by enhancing their organisational development/psychology knowledge to strengthen their worksite personal leadership.
Note: For the benefit of participants from the construction industry links will be made to the recently released DPTI Safety Culture Measures.
By the end of this workshop, participants will have discussed and developed an Action Plan to support worksite managers, and personnel generally, comply with and integrate safe work practices into day-to-day activities to achieve both safe and effective business outcomes. This includes how to:
- Apply organisational psychology/behaviour principles to safety;
- Integrate the organisation’s vison and values into their work to achieve safe outcomes;
- Support workplace managers, supervisors and personnel to respond positively to current worksite safety challenges;
- Ensure initiatives take into consideration the impact of human behaviour such as risk tolerance, habits, perceptions, reaction to change etc.;
- Take a “Return on Investment” approach to proposing safety initiatives;
- Use mindful personal leadership to influence the integration of safety into business activities;
and encourage participants to continue their personal development journey to making a difference for people and work.
Included is 2 hours coaching (via telephone) 1 month after the workshop with a focus on Action Plan implementation.
