IOSH conference keynote: stepping up


Health and safety professionals can be powerful leaders or agents of positive change, inspiring and motivating others to help create more purposeful and fulfilling workplaces.

That is one of the key messages that international business adviser and community leader Dr John Izzo will drive home this morning when he presents the keynote address on the opening day of the IOSH conference.

Drawing on his latest book Stepping Up, Dr Izzo will show delegates how taking personal responsibility can enhance not only someone’s work environment, but also their personal life and wider society.

“Each time someone steps up and takes responsibility at whatever level they are in the organisation, they create a ripple of responsibility with others,” he told SHP in an exclusive interview featured in the April 2015 issue.

“In the context of safety, if one person challenges a colleague, which is often a very difficult thing to do, then it makes others more likely to step up and take responsibility.”

Recognised as a modern philosopher on work and life, who consults and advises some of the most respected corporations in the world, Dr John Izzo’s keynote address takes place this morning at 9.45am.
