Workshop 1: Safety practitioners – getting your message across
The aim is to identify and discuss the issues faced by safety practitioners in their day jobs. If all projects followed predictable planned paths then the opportunity for being mis-understood would be limited. Safety practitioners have to be part of the solution, not the problem.
The workshop will look at the challenges faced in different phases of the safety lifecycle and discuss potential resolutions.
The session will be interactive, and conducted under Chatham House Rule, and all participants must agree to abide by the Rule.
When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.
The workshop is aimed at safety practitioners, who are expected to gain an opportunity to identify and discuss real project issues, as well as explore potential resolutions based on the experience of those present.
John Canning, Virkonen
