Video: Rosa Parks, the power of acquaintances – SHP Safety Talks

In his eighth episode for SHP Safety Talks, Professor Tim Marsh, Chairman RyderMarshSharman and Honorary Professor, Plymouth University, explains what Rosa Parks and the civil rights movement can teach us about safety. Her incarceration after refusing to give up her seat on a bus decades ago sparked a huge protest, driven by the fact that people knew her, explains Tim.

The reason why this is important is because people respond completely differently to someone they’re acquainted with than to a stranger. Watch the video below to find out how this relates to health and safety.

The SHP Safety Talks are a series of small thought pieces designed to get you thinking, whist perhaps sipping your morning coffee. The SHPonline editorial team have invited key individuals from the safety world to deliver these mini-lectures, and you can expect only the most insightful, challenging and engaging threads.
