Shape The Future of Safety at Work

A unique one-day event during the Safety in Action Conference designed for leaders shaping the future of safety at work.

Leaders play a critical role in the safety of their organizations and undoubtedly influence the success of its safety culture. Organizations with strong leadership commitment have lower injury and fatality rates and move closer to a zero- injury culture. 

This year the topic in focus is Brains, Behaviors & Culture: The Hidden Connections. Join leaders from around the world in Nashville to explore and incorporate a science-based approach to Human Performance Reliability. Learn about how you can impact improvements in error reduction and reduce related impact as we talk brains and the science behind decision making.

Join us to explore questions that every safety professional has encountered in their career: Why do people make the decisions they make and what can be done to impact that behavior to strengthen safety? 

We will gain a new look at safety performance by presenting a better understanding of how exposure is created, how we can expect our people to perform in those situations, and what are the opportunities to change behavior for better outcomes. Censuring workers is not the answer to incidents. Instead, safety leaders need to understand the hidden connections embedded between exposure, the brain, and human behavior in order to ultimately deliver the next level of safety performance.
