Culture Change: Winning Hearts And Minds For Safe Behavior

Friday, June 12, 2015, 8 am - 5 pm

Unsafe behaviors and conditions cause workplace injuries and illnesses, and professionals need to not only ensure regulatory compliance but also implement a culture of safety. How can a methodological culture change be executed? 

This class looks at those who have worked culture changes in the most austere and dangerous conditions. Using military counterinsurgency operational components can avoid being the safety police and instead empower employees with the determination and ability to be safe. This class will be taught by Cory Worden.
