Smashing through the glass ceiling: 5 critical capabilities for safety professionals

Who is a more effective health and safety professional? A person with a university degree or a person with operational experience doing hazardous work. Whether the health and safety profession should have minimum qualification requirements is a debate that rages across industry and within the profession. However, we are asking the wrong question, what we should be asking is – why our university health and safety courses don’t adequately develop effective professional practice capabilities? This presentation explains the 5 critical capabilities required by safety professionals to have a meaningful impact on the safety of work in their organisation. With these insights, we will explore how the health and safety profession can transform itself into organisational leaders regularly sought out by their C-Suite for advice, not just on safety – but on all strategic and operational business decisions. If you are a safety professional that wants a permanent seat at the leadership table then don’t miss this discussion.
