THE BIGGER PICTURE

Using interactive drama we begin to explore how a situation can arise, where the boot is on the other foot.

Ever gone to sleep hoping that the project will go well? …Or woken up with that sick feeling in the pit of your stomach that something ‘ just isn’t right’? When you feel it’s not right; it probably isn’t!  … Our worst nightmare is that we act too late.

FOUR FRIENDS

21st January 2011, four men went to work and never came home again. Matt will openly speak about the traumatic effect of an industrial accident both from a personal and legal side, being a director of Hazegood Construction, a brother and a friend.

He will share this extremely emotive life changing story to encourage Directors and Senior Managers to be more responsible for their actions … the people they employ and also to show how things can quickly escalate and effect not only their lives, families, friends and work colleagues but the same of the employee too.

BLAGGING IT … LET’S CHANGE THE IMAGE!

This session explores how easy it is to blag what Safety and Health is all about, do our business leaders really get it? … Just think of the benefits if they do?
Not just creating the environment that people want to work in but how much more successful the business can be.

The session looks at how it is easy to mislead our leaders and how our safety professionals can be misled. It explores the importance of giving the right message and how much more successful the profession can be when we become part of the success of the business as opposed to maybe sometimes seen as the disabler to success, enable … not disable.

CONTROL YOUR INNER ‘HULK’ TO FEEL AND PERFORM BETTER!

We’ve all been there before….when we wanted to say something, but didn’t! Where we had a different view…but didn’t share it! Where we disagreed totally….but said nothing!  This session will focus on some of the behaviours that are present WHEN THINGS GO WELL!  Yes, an appreciative look into what people were doing when projects went better than expected. We spend far too much time looking at why something went wrong, but let’s learn about why things went well!

Bruce will discuss tips about how we can think more factually, to create more accurate communication, to enhance how we feel as a person, and perform as a company. Be a better version of you…by controlling your inner ‘HULK’!

VISION & INSPIRATION

“In a world of targets, pressures, deadlines and regulations it is more important than ever that a leader offers a compelling vision and inspires their people to deliver at their peak” …

Leaders will be asked to think about their compelling vision and how they aim to challenge their colleagues at every level to engage, empower, inspire and develop their people. Nigel will be asking leaders to be brutally honest with themselves and really see themselves as their people see them.

THE BIGGER PICTURE, THE STORY UNFOLDS

All the Holes lined up; how can we identify and strengthen the barriers between us and an incident? …We all see the world through our own set of lenses but are we seeing, saying and hearing the same things?

When an incident has happened, the best we can do is ask, learn and attempt to prevent a similar incident occurring in the future. Our challenge is to remain diligent and committed in keeping safety at the forefront of all our conversations – even when we may have something to lose.

THE INTERVIEW

Interview under caution is typically the last major link in the chain of investigation before a decision is made on whether a prosecution will be brought.

It can be an intimidating encounter, but it is also an opportunity for potential defendants to put their own case on record, with a view to influencing the prosecution decision or laying an early basis for a later plea in mitigation.

Mark Scoggins will give his view on key considerations for those invited to attend such an interview.                          This session will cover …
• Options and Opportunities  • Who to send  • How to prepare  • What to avoid  • Setting the tone  • Keeping control  • Perils and Pitfalls  • Managing the Aftermath
