8:55 AM – 9:35 AM
WAKE UP! WE’VE GOT TO CHANGE EVERYTHING!
This talk will look at the highlights and low points of a rapidly changing environmental and sustainability agenda. We are at a time in history where the realisation that our collective future and survival requires a fundamental shift in the very foundations of the way we live, work and play.
GROUP HEALTH, SAFETY, ENVIRONMENT & SECURITY DIRECTOR
9:35 AM – 10:05 AM
SAFETY IN A CONNECTED AND DIGITAL WORLD
The technologies increasingly available to SHE managers will transform how we keep workers safety and healthy. From VR that is transforming safety training, to wearables that enable real-time monitoring of health risks, to smart PPE that ‘connects’ workers to other risks on-site, through to data analytics that provides insight into your performance, the opportunities of safety tech are significant. But where to start, what are the considerations and what do SHE managers need to do differently in this new world? James Pomeroy will explore these issues and others, providing insight into the future world of safety.
Key topics and take-aways:
- Understand the potential of Safety Tech on your future work and the potential disruptors
- Navigating the enablers and barriers to Safety Tech, some shared lessons
- How do our roles and approach need to change to realise the opportunities?

11:25 AM – 12:05 PM
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
DIRECTOR OF THE NATIONAL CENTRE FOR STRATEGIC LEADERSHIP AT BABINGTON
12:05 PM – 12:45 PM
MOST OF WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT MANAGING PERFORMANCE IS WRONG!
For decades, managers have used carrot & stick incentives to manage performance. Recent scientific discoveries about the brain show that this is often a really bad idea. So what can you do instead? This talk by leadership thinker Nigel Girling might give you some clues.

BUFFET LUNCH & EXHIBITION VIEWING
COLONEL ANDY REID MBE
1:35 PM – 2:15 PM
“I’m a survivor, not a victim. I’m still here. I’m gonna start setting myself some goals and start moving forward”…
In October 2009, Corporal Andy Reid lost both of his legs and his right arm after stepping on an IED while on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, with the 3rd Battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment. His injuries were so bad that it was thought he would not survive; however, he astounded people with recovery, returning home after just two weeks in the hospital.
Serving in the British Armed Forces was a childhood dream for Andy, who continues to reflect positively on his time in the army and the fantastic opportunities and experiences it allowed him to experience. A testament to his attitude in overcoming adversity, he doesn’t let the severity of his injuries stop him from living his life with a positive mindset.

IT’S OK NOT TO BE OK
“Ask a friend if they’re OK and ask them again because you just might trigger something inside them
and they get all their worries off their chest … that one question could save a life”
Danny was a professional rugby league player with a number of clubs; Rochdale, Wigan, Castlefield, Bradford, Huddersfield and Wakefield. He was fortunate to also represent his country and captained the team on two occasions.
During a training accident he was forced into retirement and suffered severe depression and despair
with frequent thoughts of taking his life.
Phil, an Australian ex Super League player with over 500 appearances in the top grade. He played for Souths in Australia and then to St Helens, Huddersfield, Swinton in the UK with great success, he also represented Scotland. After coming to the end of his playing career he embarked on a coaching career, this being very successful with numerous trophies won. Through management he suffered badly with depression on top of a family tragedy, his issues got worse.
Danny and Phil will openly speak about the difficult times and how as a result of talking and sharing
their thoughts they were able to recover.
They are now ambassadors for State of Mind Sport, a charity that aims to use the power of sport to tackle stigma and reach vulnerable people in order to prevent harm and change the way people think, speak and feel.

EXECUTIVE EXPOSURE – DIRECTORS IN THE DOCK
Recent years have seen a marked increase in the number of prosecutions brought against individual directors and managers for alleged neglect of duty in health and safety matters. Who is in the HSE’s sights? What level of management is liable to be targeted? What is the test for criminal liability? Does the personal duty of care turn on corporate non-compliance? Do individuals face the reverse burden of proof? How best can managers avoid prosecution? Mark Scoggins will review relevant law and practice.
