Event description


Are you interested in looking at safety through a different lens, focusing on success and taking an agile and adaptive approach to how you lead your workforce?

In partnership with Acre, Art of Work will deliver a series of Safety Innovation Breakfasts. This is a great opportunity to meet industry and thought leaders who are engaged in progressive change for safety.

Safety Innovation Breakfast - The compelling case for change

Many organisations rely on using compliance, control and constraints to ensure safety. This way, the focus and purpose of safety management has shifted to legalistic concerns and bureaucratic accountabilities, rather than enabling teams to resiliently manage safety critical tasks in complex work environments.

The Art of Work Safety Innovation Breakfast brings you John Green, HSEQ Director for the European Hub of Laing O’Rourke, who will present a compelling case for change. Participants will learn why compliance and constraint is counter-productive, and therefore a dangerous way to organise safety. John Green will identify why a one sided focus on injury prevention leads to a disengaging, negative and tedious culture that ultimately obscures critical risk management.

Helen Rawlinson, Managing Director UK for Art of Work, will explain why the use of traditional approaches are inadequate to fulfill the current demands of our workplaces and discusses an alternative approach, one which understands normal work and enables businesses to unlock the potential which already exists within their organisation.
