The importance of top management leadership
Organisations around the world are currently going through unprecedented change and during this time of change there is still much to do from a health, safety and wellbeing perspective. In order for change to happen though, cultures and attitudes need to change too, which means that leaders need to recognise and commit to the required changes and then embed this new thinking throughout every area of business and maybe even society. Hear from Dr. Waddah S. Ghanem and get involved in the debate about how top management leadership and worker participation in health, safety and wellbeing strategies will be key. Hear the latest thinking that you can use to develop strategies within your business.
Preparing for the future workplace
We are in the middle of what some are calling the 4th industrial revolution. However we describe it, radical change is happening right now across many industries and health, safety and wellbeing professionals are having to adapt. Technologies like AI and automation are starting to expand across industries, there is a rise in gig economy and our mental and physical health, even our very sense of self is at risk. Find out from Mike Robinson, Chief Executive Officer at British Safety Council, how you and your business can prepare for this uncertain world ahead.

Virtual reality – training showcase
With the recent release of the Oculus Go, a fully functional self-contained VR headset can be purchased for under £200. It is no longer prohibitively expensive to purchase enough headsets for an entire class to use simultaneously. But how can VR be used effectively in training? Can it just be used to teach process or can it also be used to influence and change behaviour? Isn’t VR training just glorified gaming anyway?
In this session, James will discuss:
• making an impact through engaging the senses and evoking emotional responses
|James Mansbridge Head of Digital Learning, British Safety Council|
Promoting positive workplace culture
The session will cover the three stage approach to culture change and demonstrate what it takes to drive a movement where people choose to do the right thing, because they know it’s the right thing to do. Sharing examples and case studies that demonstrate how clients have discovered the reality of their present culture, and created a road map of training and engagement at every level of the organisation to drive a sustainable change.
