For many companies in Australia, safety performance is good, but progress has stalled. Injury rates are not improving, and worse, fatalities continue to plague the Australia Resource industry.* In order to address these complex challenges, operating and construction sites are taking fresh approaches to safety management based on new principles beyond behaviour as a cause, and beyond errors and strict compliance.
What if people are not the variable to control, but the solution to the next level of performance in both operations and construction?
What if we spent a lot less on measuring and parsing the injuries and incidents that happen and put that investment into building robust capability and response?
JMJ Founder & Partner Mike Goddu, Professor Sidney Dekker and Dr. Todd Conklin will address these questions among others during an interactive and provocative workshop entitled ‘Thinking Differently About Safety’ at the Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia’s (CME) Annual Safety and Health Conference in Perth. This presentation will challenge current thinking, featuring a discussion of principals for Leading Safety Differently and examples of companies and teams putting these principles into action to build Leadership, Resilience and Best Practice.
*According to statistics found on Safe Work Australia.
