The term “safety culture” is widely used, yet there is little consensus on how the term is defined and understood. Safety culture is often expressed and learned within the workplace. However, it can be fostered, adapted, and improved by strong leadership and good resources.  Safety Culture can be positive when there are shared values and beliefs within an organization on health and safety. In this presentation, methods for assessing your organization’s current Safety Culture will be shared. In addition, there will be a review of some current resources available to foster an improved Safety Culture. The workshop will be presented in an informal, fun way with practical tips and real life stories of Safety Culture.

The workshop begins by helping participants to understand the underlying factors that influence respect between people and in the workplace. The workshop goes further to help participants develop skills for a diverse workplace and lasting habits that promote a workplace culture of respect. Tips to create a workplace where all are treated with dignity and respect will be reviewed during this session. There will be an opportunity for self-reflection during the workshop as well. And, there will be plenty of opportunities for questions and discussion.

People with decision making and authority duties will learn in this session to better focus on the following MUST KNOW components of Workplace Safety:

  • Internal Responsibility System
  • Workers’ Responsibilities
  • Due Diligence
  • Hazard Identification

This is an important session for all supervisors and managers, particularly those who manage front-line service delivery units.

Workers have rights and responsibilities when it comes to safety in their workplaces. This session will review these and discuss and analyze different scenarios where these can be put into practice. This is useful information for all employees.

The main goal of an incident investigation is to find the root cause rather than fault. The next goal is to prevent a reoccurrence. This workshop will look at how investigating properly can prevent future incidents, save money, reduce human suffering, and work towards continuous improvement in maintaining a safe and healthy workplace. Open to all employees, this session is also of particular interest to members of OHS Committees, Managers and Supervisors.
