Occupational Keynote:  8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. 

The Future of Workplace Safety

Will the future be more regulations and OSHA compliance standards, and if so what will they be? Or will it be more focused on people: their critical decisions and unintentional errors? Will it be confined to the workplace like it is in Europe or will it be 24/7 and include the family? What about neuroscience? Will safety remain with risk management or move into human performance? And finally, will issues with management commitment still remain? With extensive experience from around the globe, the presenters will share their views on the future of safety and why they're so optimistic for the next 10 years.

The Seven Most Dangerous Ideas in Safety

Never in our history have our workplaces been so safe and our workers well protected.

Yet in recent years, something strange started to happen. While many companies have "hit a wall" in safety performance, some have been slow but visible increase in serious accidents, and most alarmingly, a few "best in class" companies suffered catastrophic events. Something is wrong...

Corrie's presentation will demonstrate how the few seconds before a disaster were years in making - by well-intended, but dangerous ideas, beliefs and delusions. He will discuss the new roles of leaders and practitioners in a different world awaiting us.
