SafeConnection Expert Panel Series – Asia and India Panel: Excellent Safety Equals Excellent Business Performance
21 January @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Every manager knows that good safety equals good business because incidents and injuries cost money. But some senior managers and executives believe that excellent safety equals excellent business performance. They have shifted their thinking towards the concept of high reliability, which by definition, addresses the need to manage human error proactively. However, when pressed for an explanation, very few can explain the cause/effect relationship. What is much more common is that they have developed a belief in the correlation. In other words, “It worked for me before (or at the last plant, division, company I was in charge of) so I’m doing it again. I don’t know exactly why. I just know it works.”
The people on the panel all work at very large companies that have excellent safety performance. They can tell us what they think in terms of “cause vs. correlation”. They can tell us what they think their executives and plant managers think and they can tell us what their supervisors and employees believe. But that doesn’t mean they’re always right or that you have to agree with them. However, one thing you can count on is that you’ll be introduced to new ideas or paradigms that explain (definitively) why excellent safety causes excellent business performance. Whether you agree will obviously be up to you, but it’s such an important factor in terms of truly gaining management support and engagement. So please join us for this interesting and what will likely be a very provocative session.
