“Challenge, change and stay curious – the future of health and safety”
“Mental health – a competitive advantage”
John is an internationally acclaimed expert in Safety II – an approach that changes safety management from “avoiding things going wrong” to “ensuring everything goes right”. He is widely recognised for his safety achievements at multi-national construction giant Laing O’Rourke. John will explore what changes we need to make to put people at the centre of workplace health and safety, rather than just focusing on good systems and processes. He will cover the changes we need to make as health and safety practitioners, as well as the shifts in skills and competencies that are needed.
From Ted Talks to HASANZ CONFERENCE 2018. Committed to breaking the stigma associated with mental health issues in the corporate world, Geoff has consulted David Cameron and CEOs from Footsie 100 companies, and supported Princes William and Harry on their Royal Foundation mental health campaign. Geoff will speak about the energising role of good mental health in the workplace and how this can be a competitive advantage. He will show how focusing on worker wellbeing can grow business, and help attract and retain talent, sharing good practice and providing tools to turn the negative into a positive.
