Safety Culture Development

from Compliance to Integrity

Our Services

Safety Culture Alignment Consulting

Whilst company leaders are increasingly recognising the business benefits of moving from a safety compliance focus to integrating safety into mainstream, everyday business activities, the challenge of how to to do this remains. Safety Culture Development works with organisations to help them achieve sustainable business benefits from this alignment.

Safety Culture Workshops and Safety Leadership Workshops

To meet the specific developmental needs of personnel involved directly with safe operations, or where for operational reasons companies are not yet able to have an in-house approach, Safety Culture Development through our training division, Safety X, provide the following Public Programs. Note that the programs can also be modified to meet a client’s needs and be facilitated in-house.

About Safety Culture Development

Our experience is that when safety is integrated into all business activities, rather than focusing primarily on compliance, business performance is improved. We work with companies to support them in their move from safety compliance to safety integrity.

Current Events

Safety Culture Development through our training division, Safety X, are pleased to announce next course dates for our Professional Development Workshops for Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing Professionals and Practitioners (WHSW Specialists). 

Change Management Workshop (Course) for Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing Professionals and Practitioners (OHSW Specialists) 

The recently released Occupational Health and Safety Professional Capability Framework identifies Change Management as a key activity for Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing (OHSW) Specialists. The framework recognises that WHSW Specialists are Change Agents. They create change at all levels of the organisation. At an individual level, they influence personnel to change the way they work. At a business level they change the way the business unit operates and at an organisational level they change the way the organisation carries out its business. In addition,they need to be aware of and be able and willing to discuss the safety impact of proposed changes initiated in other parts of the business.

Coaching and Mentoring Workshop for Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing Professionals and Practitioners (WHSW Specialists)

Coaching and mentoring are processes that enable individuals to develop over time. They are useful when:

  • Personnel return from a developmental experience or instead of attending off-the-job development;
  • Creating and consolidating change;
  • Following up when someone hasn’t done what you’ve asked;
  • Working with a colleague who may be at odds with your approach;
  • Handling conflict between colleagues or between yourself and someone else.

As WHSW Specialists usually do not have direct line authority when creating create change and requiring compliance, influencing techniques must be used. Coaching and mentoring are two of these influencing techniques to use to help achieve the integration of safety through organisations.

This 2 – day interactive, informative and engaging Coaching and Mentoring Workshop for Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing  Professionals and Practitioners (WHSW Specialists) facilitated by Safety X aims equip participants with the the with knowledge, skills and tools needed to coach and mentor effectively. 

It has been designed and developed in consultation with safety specialists who have extensive operational safety backgrounds as well.

Building Organisational Influence – Workshop for Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing Professionals and Practitioners (WHSW Specialists) 

Influencing is the ability to achieve an outcome by using interpersonal and communication techniques without apparent use of direct authority. 

Organisational decisions made by managers, as well as their and employee behaviour, impact on the safety and wellbeing of personnel who work in our organisations. Many are unaware of the impact their behavior and decisions have.    

It is the role of the WHSW Specialist to influence Managers and Employees so they:

  • Are aware of the impact of their decisions and behaviour has on people in our organisations;
  • Do consider Health, Safety and Wellbeing in their decisions and behaviour;
  • Do change their behaviour to achieve a positive impact on personnel within our organisations.

This workshop is designed for Workplace Health, Safety and Wellbeing Professionals and Practitioners (WHSW Specialists) who are accountable for for influencing others across their organisation to take personal responsibility for safety and well being.
