Session Sampling

751  Cyber Bullying: Who What When Where How & Why

The Internet and mobile technology now allows us to be contacted and connected 24/7 anywhere in the world even in the comfort and safety of home. Some users of the internet are abusing the fantastic facilities it offers but can cause distress to thousands of people across the world. Cyber bullies aim to cause distress by tormenting others from pedophiles targeting children to serial bullies targeting anyone. This session will provide information on how it is used, how it is done and methods that work to fight all types of cyber bullying.

676  Core Leadership Skills for the SH&E Professional
Sponsored by the International Practice Specialty

As SH&E professionals move to become more integrated into the business environment it is even more crucial that the pure technical disciplines typically associated with the profession are complimented by a strong set of relevant leadership and business skills. In this session we will examine the various traits and core attributes that need to be displayed by the SH&E professional not only to provide clear direction within their area of influence but also to gain credibility, and achieve alignment, with the rest of the organization.

Instructors: Stuart G. Wood, MSc, CMIOSH, CPEA, RSP, C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc., Keene, NH

714  Interventions for Safety Culture Change and Behavioral Change

This session will focus on the leading, rather than trailing, interventions essential in ensuring a positive change in the safety culture of an organization. Once the culture makes the positive shift to a safety-related focus, then, and only then, can we expect to see changes in behavior. This session will explore the options that can serve as a catalyst for advancing activities necessary for a successful conversion.
