I Changed a Safety Culture and It Nearly Killed Me!

Description: After nearly thirty years in the safety profession, including a variety of industries and mines in more than seven countries, I accepted an assignment as a safety change agent. I thought it would be a routine two-year assignment - but I was wrong! The first thing I encounter when I arrived on the site was the fact that 2,200 employees in this heavy industry were all wearing bump caps and not hard hats. The next discovery, to my dismay was that my director, who had hired me, didn’t know what a safety change agent was, or what he does… This session will tell you the rest of the story.
