Changing the Safety Conversations

Developing a mentally healthy workplace is a goal for safety professionals, HR teams and lawyers alike, it leads to more productivity and greater safety.

Organisations continue to invest in wellness programs and encourage employees to build their resilience. In this session, we ask is this the right approach? It takes more than a discounted health-club membership and mindfulness programs to move the needle on employee wellbeing. Seventy-five per cent of people say that the most stressful part of their job is their immediate supervisor. The biggest cause of chronic illness is stress and the biggest cause of stress is work.

Linda Ray (CEO of NeuroCapability) discusses why psychological safety is the key factor in high performing teams, wellbeing and engagement and what we can do to improve psychological safety climate in the workplace; and Chris Phillips (CEO, Grey Matta Solutions) talks about the practical application and how he achieved exceptional results in the real world including a 66% reduction in LTI inside twelve months.
