Because what got you here, isn't going to get you where you need to go next

Masterclass Overview

In recent years a new school of thought has emerged on how safety can be best managed in modern complex organisations.

This new theory is commonly referred to as resilience engineering, safety differently, Safety-II, or more plainly ‘the new view of safety’.

Whereas traditional compliance and behavioural safety management approaches, involved a centralised and standardised determination of what is safe that is cascaded to all personnel, safety differently harnesses the expertise and insight of the front-line workers and experts and supports them to flexibly respond to the situations that they face.

It is the people on the front-line of your organisation, and only them, who can sense and respond to a changing world and bridge the gaps in technology, processes, and information to maintain safety.

How is your organisation and the safety professionals within it enabling this to happen?

"Great to have conversations around a new approach to Safety"

"Interesting info not offered elsewhere"

"Great discussion and thought provoking topics and really this is unexplored topic within the profession"

"It gave me a different insight and helps to understand the journey of the safety professional"

In the masterclass we will explore: 

  • check
    An awareness of our individual and collective beliefs about the health and safety professionals role
  • check
    A history of our profession, which has brought us to where we are today
  • check
    The theory and concepts behind safety professional practice alternatives
  • check
    Putting these theory & concepts into practice in the context of your professional role & your organisation
  • check
    Understanding and managing barriers and challenges to leading this kind of change

But this learning experience isn't your ordinary training course (focussed on just knowledge).  

This masterclass is facilitated and intentional, social and experiential learning at it's finest.  

You will be engaged & challenged.  

You will make sense of your issues and opportunities in your own situation.  

You will be driven to take action amongst a group of supportive peers.  

You will be set to make meaningful progress towards your version of 'different'.
