Don’t miss Dr Todd Conklin and Corrie Pitzer
at this breakthrough Workshop!
Management, human sciences, technology and engineering have all made huge advances in the last few decades that left the safety profession behind. In safety, we are still stuck in a psychology that is 30-40 years outdated, where many of our safety concepts are from the 1950’s and earlier and are now obsolete, and yet we still run with them every day, faster and harder.
“Safety is on the Edge”, balancing on a cliff’s edge, and if we as safety professionals don’t recognize this and become part of the change, we run the risk of being left behind. Safety in most organizations has plateaued, and even deteriorated despite our best efforts. We simply have to start doing safety differently, but what, how and why?
If you believe any of the statements below to be true, you need to attend this workshop:
Humans are responsible for the majority of accidents
All accidents are preventable
Accidents have root causes and which can be traced
Safety can be measured with rates and indicators
“Zero accidents” is a valid and aspirational goal
Each person is accountable for their own safety
These are some of the ‘myths in safety’ that these speakers will tackle head on. Each of these two speakers has the ability to engage audiences, woo them and change thinking, and now they will be together on one stage.
