SIA Webinar: Making Safety Personal

On behalf of the Safety Institute & the Pacific Institute, we invite you to take part in our next webinar which will focus on Making Safety Personal.

What if ……

We could build an internal mechanism within every individual that automatically led to better decision making around personal and team safety?

Within the context of your policies, procedures and systems all individuals at all levels were self-directed and fully accountable?

We could develop sustainably positive attitudes and beliefs around safety to make it truly personal as well as collective?

We could create a “want to” rather than a “have to” safety culture? This session explores the application of the latest research in the cognitive and neuro-sciences to building leadership and accountability around safety within each individual at all levels of an organisation. Making safety personal is not about organisations giving up responsibility for ensuring a safe working environment with safe work practices, it’s about creating a mindset within each individual that ensures adherence to those agreed work practices by developing a self-image as a safety professional in all aspects of their lives.
