The health & safety profession, how is it changing?

In this episode, we drop in on a panel debate which discusses the changing the perception of the health & safety profession, the opportunities for increasing collaboration across teams, and changing the direction of safety in the workplace, through genuine staff engagement. 

Safety & Health PodcastRecorded in the Operational Excellence Theatre at Safety & Health Expo in May, this panel discussion focussed on the COVID-19 pandemic and how it could be argued that the safety profession is now viewed in a more positive light by the general public. The panel talked about the opportunities for increasing collaboration across teams, and changing the direction of safety in the workplace, through genuine staff engagement.
