JMJ Associates and Professor Sidney Dekker to Co-host Provocative Discussion on Leading and Managing Safety Differently

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA, February 2015—On Thursday, 19 March 2015, Mike Goddu, co-founder of JMJ Associates, and best-selling author Professor Sidney Dekker of Griffith University, will host a provocative discussion exploring the issue of Leading Safety Differently at the Hilton Brisbane Hotel.

Following the success of the Safety Differently event held in Perth in November last year, Mike and Sidney will once again offer real insights into how to lead and manage Safety Differently in the changing environments of the Oil & Gas, Construction and Mining sectors. Discussion topics will include moving from construction to operations in Australian projects, the challenges currently faced in these sectors, and a look beyond behaviour-based safety approaches and the existing safety management bureaucracy.

This event presents an opportunity for Brisbane’s safety professionals and business leaders to learn, discuss and connect with like-minded professionals while challenging the status quo and joining the conversation on the next evolution of safety leadership in Australia.

“Many of us in the industry are frustrated by the number of continued incidents despite the increases in regulations and processes intended to make our work safer,” said Mike Goddu, JMJ Co-founder. “It’s time we challenge ourselves to question what we’ve been doing and find a new way forward—that’s what this conversation is about.”

The November Perth event delivered an engaging and thought provoking discussion where 77% of participants said it made them think differently about safety. One participant said Great conversation, challenging common ideologies. Thank you.” Another commented, “A great event with food for thought. Sidney and Mike were awesome with what they did!”
