WELCOME AND OPENING REMARKS

PART 1 –  CULTURE & BEHAVIOURAL CHANGE (THE VISION)

CHRIS HINES MBE

9:10 AM – 10:00 AM
CAN BUSINESS SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT?

With nearly 30 years of working in the environmental and campaigning sector Chris has helped achieve some significant environmental changes but has also realised the massive scale of the environmental challenges that face us.
Chris will argue that in the face of such daunting tasks there is a need for passion, optimism as well as a healthy dose of righteous outrage and that ultimately we have the ability as a species to adapt and ensure that we live in harmony with the natural environment of our planet. There has never been a time where the saying “the whole world is in your hands.” has rung more true.
This talk will look at some of the challenges facing us, but also and importantly, the vision needed to get us out of this environmental chasm. He will provide some suggested solutions and some tales from the campaign trail and emphasise how we can all make a difference as organisations and individuals.
If all 7 billion people on planet Earth make one positive change that’s 7 billion positive actions…

BEHAVIOUR CHANGE ISN’T JUST ABOUT CHANGING BEHAVIOURS

Duncan believes that there may be a problem with the term behavioural safety as the term “behaviour” implies that it is the person that needs fixing, leading to a focus on approaches that do not address the many influences on behaviour. He puts this down to a confusion between culture change and behaviour change, and an over-reliance on approaches that don’t focus on specific behaviours, but take the same approach, regardless of the issue. Duncan goes further to suggest that often, there is little or no attempt to understand the issues before applying a one size fits all formula.  Using examples that show how such approaches are almost sure to fail in the long run, Duncan discusses what he believes are more effective ways of addressing behaviour change and gives examples of where this worked. His message is that:

  • safety behaviours are complex rather than complicated
  • the people that do the work have the answers
  • understanding what you want to change is the first step

PART 2 – MENTAL WELLBEING (THE MIND)

MATT COLECLOUGH
MINDSAFE

Read more about Matt

11:30 AM – 12:00 PM
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

Matt suffered with chronic panic disorder and agoraphobia from 1997 – 2006. Doctor’s, therapists and medication did little for him and in 2004 he attempted to take his own life.

Through his own research he found the answers he was looking for – recovery followed.

He attributes his recovery to gaining a good understanding of his illness, an understanding which wasn’t given to him by trained ‘professionals’. Matt believes one of the main reasons why there’s a mental health epidemic in the UK is because of a lack of understanding – nobody really knows what’s wrong with them and few people are giving them satisfactory explanations. Later he studied to become a Psychotherapist specialising in anxiety conditions.

Central to the presentation is a focus on the most common forms of mental health complaints anxiety and depression. He will speak about these disorders from a refreshing viewpoint and show how by gaining a good understanding you can help improve the lives of your employees and help create a happier, more productive and resilient workforce.

THE FUTURE OF PEOPLE POWERED HEALTH AND WELLBEING

  • Creating the right environment for people to thrive and the positive outcomes.
  • Health as a solution – Occupational Health, Occupational Hygiene and Wellbeing/Health promotion are distinct, but overlapping disciplines that should complement each other and work together in a multidisciplinary approach.
  • Making health the hero: how employee communications providing the right environment can prioritise mental health in the workplace.

MATT HAZELTON

12:40 PM – 1:20 PM
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.

PART 3 – RESILIENCE, POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY & THE LAW (CLARITY)

JASON ANKER MBE
ANKER & MARSH

2:10 PM – 3:00 PM
“IT’S NOT ABOUT THE FALL… IT’S ABOUT THE BOUNCE”

Jason Anker MBE and Prof. Tim Marsh have recently come together to develop a brand new presentation which no doubt will have a powerful effect on the way you look, think and feel as individuals and organisations.

It briefly covers Jason’s physical (and subsequent mental) trauma but quickly moves to the key principles of positive psychology through case studies from the world of sport, historical events and, of course, Jason’s own experience of rebuilding his life through developing  a resilient and positive approach.

After considering how that is vital, both personally and in the work place, it concludes with a review of the best ways we can take practical steps to flourish and even a ‘magic bullet’ you won’t find anywhere else – the balanced but!

3:00 PM – 3:50 PM
DEFENSIBLE DECISION-MAKING

Proving compliance with what the law requires in health, safety and welfare almost always comes down to explaining and justifying decisions taken before, sometimes many years before, an incident or untoward event: typically, decisions around the assessment and management of risk, setting out systems of work, provision of equipment, incident reporting and employee engagement.

Mark Scoggins draws on his experience to suggest ways in which employers can improve the quality of decision-making and, crucially, create credible evidence of a rational  and reasonable process which justifies its outcome.  He will emphasise that the difficulties he commonly encounters in defending decisions taken by his clients lie at root in the absence of recorded reasoning: the relevant decision is clear enough, but there is little if anything which is both contemporaneous and credible to explain how it was arrived at.  When accidents happen, regulators are usually much less interested in the “destination” (the decision itself) than they are in understanding the “journey” toward it (the reasoning).

He will highlight the benefits of reasoned records, set out his conviction that quality of reasoning trumps quantity of words, provide examples of very good (and very bad) practice, and stress that while a decision needs to be reasonable to be defensible, the law does not require it to be “right”.
