Barbour webinar: Safety Differently

We have all heard the rhetoric about Safety Differently, but how does it actually work in practise? How do you, for example, find leading indicators which keep your Board satisfied? How do you make people the solution not the problem? This webinar features senior health and safety managers and directors who have started using the principles in their organisations and who are experimenting with different approaches which fit the principles of ‘Safety Differently’:

  • People are the solution to harness, not a problem to control.
  • Safety is the presence of positives, not the absence of negatives.
  • Safety is an ethical responsibility, not a bureaucratic accountability.

The webinar features Helen Rawlinson, Managing Director of Art of Work UK, Simon Bown, Head of HSE at Luton Airport, Lorene Carter, Lead HSSE Manager for SPL Power Lines UK and Chris Lea, Director of Wellbeing, HS&E & Responsibility at UCB (UK & Ireland)
