Conference Workshop – Are Your Investigations a Waste of Time?

Are Your Investigations a Waste of Time?

This interactive workshop will explore the importance of learning within organisations, with a particular focus on investigations. Participants will be challenged to consider whether some traditional approaches to investigation, that have been a mainstay of safety management systems for many years, are still serving their intended purpose.

The workshop will involve presentations, activities, and a panel discussion, covering both theory and practice. We will discuss topics including cultural maturity, investigation techniques and practices, and case studies and lessons learnt from applying these principles. The panel discussion will also include a legal perspective to ensure we are discussing learning against both the legislation and regulator activity.

Workshop Topics:

  • Dave Whitefield (Semiosphere)- Cultural maturity and organisational learning.
  • Mark Alston (Investigations Differently)- It’s about learning, not hindsight.
  • Julia Teys (Teys Australia)- The Teys journey.
  • Panel Discussion- Dave Whitefield, Mark Alston, Julia Teys, Alan Girle (ABLA).
