Podcast: Battle of the Ideas – approaches to leading health and safety

Over the course of 2016, a number of opinions and ideas around safety culture have been put forward.

In SHP’s first podcast, sponsored by Honeywell, we ask six leaders in health and safety:

  • Is safety really broken?
  • What’s the point in zero harm?
  • Is the absence of accidents a positive thing?
  • Is ‘Safety Differently’ a revolution or evolution?
  • What is the biggest threat to safety?

John Green, Ruth Gallagher, Clive Johnson, Karl Simons, Steve Hails and Tim Marsh will take to SHP’s airwaves and battle out the key ideas of leadership and culture.

Learn how they strive to create positive safety cultures through different approaches.

Register to listen live on 29th November at 15.30.

I couldn’t help but notice that this panel does not have any female representation. Is this a conscious decision, or are there no women in this field with the required knowledge base?

Hi there – see the above answer. I am sorry to say also that the number of women at this level in the profession ARE few and far between – I can think of a few, but not enough (yet!)

I ended up missing the live podcast due to work commitments. Are there any plans to make it available on-line? I’d love to listen.
