Thriving as Safety Professionals in the New Economy
Katherine A. Hart, Ed.D, CSP - ClearVision Consulting
For the last year and a half we have been participants in a world crisis that exploded in our midst, devastated millions, and is just now beginning to recede. As experts in disaster preparedness and response, safety professionals instinctively know that ‘crisis mode’ cannot be maintained and may be asking “when will we return to normal?” As reported in the Harvard Business Review, “the landscape of business has been altered forever” and leaders at all levels of the organization must learn how to operate in a “permanent” crisis mode. New buzz words such as fostering adaptation, embracing disequilibrium, and acknowledging interdependencies will be entering the business lexicon. Best practices are the norm, next practices are the future! Governmental regulation will be front and center, but with a slight twist. There is so much for safety professionals to focus on, but with a twist. Learn how to thrive and flourish in this brave new world.
It’s Not Another Hat! It’s an Opportunity
Thursday, March 11 • 1:00–2:00 pm
In today’s environment of organizational changes, new initiatives and greater expectations, SH&E has probably never had a better vantage to demonstrate its value to the organization. The characteristics of SH&E are highly compatible with new movements of sustainability and corporate social responsibility, not to mention safety’s drive to effect change in the culture of the organization. At this facilitated roundtable session, you will work as a group to determine some of the opportunities that exist for SH&E to gain greater recognition of value and rise to a higher level of excellence in these changing times. You will then develop a strategy to take back to your workplace to make that opportunity happen.
