Managing Safety Self-Awareness (webinar)

Date: June 11, 2019
Location: Online


Greg Ford, M.Ed Adult Education & Workplace Learning, B.A. Psychology
Samantha Goldstein, M.A. Organizational Psychology (in pursuit), B.A. Psychology
Studies show that up to 90% of workplace incidents are caused by human error, and progressive organizations are now looking at the human factor in the safety equation. Learning how to identify and manage personality risk factors can reduce the occurrence of injuries, work stoppages, equipment and property damage and insurance costs. This webinar is designed to help HR professionals understand how personality contributes to preventable workplace incidents. Participants will learn how to identify and coach employees who are more naturally distractible, impulsive, ruleresistant and impatient, resulting in safer behaviours in the workplace.

In this presentation, you will learn:
  1. How personality contributes to increasing or reducing workplace incidents and injuries.
  2. How to identify the leading indicators of personality risk tolerance in others and recognize risk before an incident occurs.
  3. How to adapt your communication style and training approach to each employee and improve safety-related behavior in your workplace.
Who should attend:
  • HR Professionals, Health & Safety Specialists/Managers
Format: Online - Live Webinar
Time: Log-in: 9:15 - 9:30am (PST); Presentation: 9:30am - 11:00am (PST)
