Research has found that poor employee engagement levels have a crippling effect on safety performance. The average cost of a safety incident for a disengaged employee is 6 times the cost of an engaged employee and engaged employees are 5 times less likely to have a safety incident and 7 times less likely to have a lost time incident.  So how do you improve safety engagement?

Through safety leaders who are able to build trust and influence with employees first and foremost. But it’s not easy. A recent study found that around half of Australian employees say they don't trust their manager.

In this insightful presentation, safety leaders will learn:

  • The role of trust in improving collaboration, safety outcomes and harnessing the collective intelligence of their workforce.
  • How to communicate, engage and empower employees, in order to build trust.
  • 3 important pillars to build a high performing safety leadership culture.

If you are frustrated with the lack of progress in improving employee or contractor awareness of safety or just want some new insights to consider, this session is for you.
