The Safety First Conference & Expo is a dedicated event showcasing the latest technologies, products and services to improve safety standards and compliance and reduce safety expenditure. In the lead-up to the event (9-12 May 2017), we’ll be profiling some of the leading speakers and exhibitors attending the show. 


Think about defining your safety culture. How would you do this, and what would it be?

Now think about when your people are taught new safety skills. Ever wondered why they aren’t uniformly applied resulting in different safety outcomes? And what about culture? Why is this so difficult to change within an organisation?

The answers to these questions are all connected and they relate to belief definition. To achieve zero harm, we need the ability to sustain high-level safety performance. But zero harm is a difficult challenge for workers and many workers just don’t believe it’s possible.

In his session titled ‘The MINDSENSE safety program – Defining a zero harm safety culture by applying mindfulness based high-performance thinking strategies’, Alistair Schuback will explore how defining shared safety values and beliefs and exercising mindfulness can help create a zero harm safety culture.

In particular, delegates will learn how to align the beliefs of a workplace so they are well defined and support the high-performance outcomes demanded in today’s workplace.
