Topic Slow Safety™ – How adaptive OHS professionals influence decisions
Effective OHS professionals must be able adapt when advising stakeholders and leveraging influence on decisions about matters impacting workplace safety. The decision-making process is defined as the option to have a choice amongst alternative courses of action. In this session, the facilitator will use case studies and interactive dialogue exploring how safety professionals influence decision-makers and how an adaptive, Slow Safety™ approach affects occupational health and safety (OHS) performance outcomes.
The future safety professional’s role is transforming from a technical and compliance-based manager to an innovative, adaptive safety leader. This program is based on Dr. Snyder’s research and consulting experience focus on how OHS professional competencies, capacities and capabilities are influential on organizational decision making.
