Kelvin TOP-SET are world leaders in incident investigation and problem-solving methodology. In this talk, Nikki Curtis will discuss her experiences rolling out the TOP-SET Incident Investigation System across a major infrastructure company when she was Head of HSEQ.
Nikki will discuss planning, roll-out and lessons learned along the way, as well as challenges faced by organisations implementing a new methodology.
We will also be discussing the benefits gained by taking the time to plan, implement and successfully embed an incident investigation system into an organisation and the return on investment.
This session is a lively legal update and regulatory roundup into how to reduce accidents, protect your people and reputation. BLM will guide delegates through recent health and safety case law and how this impacts on your business. The session will also review tips on best practice in incident management and investigation.
• Organisations are often puzzled that the introduction of a safety management system does not always improve safety culture, especially long-term – why is this?
• The Safety Culture Maturity Model looks at behaviours and 10 elements which are needed for safety culture - does ISO 45001 address these elements?
• Have organisations that have adopted ISO 45001 seen any changes to culture?
It is widely acknowledged that there is a very significant burden of respiratory disease associated with working in the British construction industry. Experts estimate that for every worker killed in a construction site accident, a hundred workers will die from long latency lung diseases resulting from dust exposures.
Chris will discuss the British Occupational Hygiene Society’s highly successful Breathe Freely campaign. This initiative was launched around 4 years ago and targeted at reducing respiratory disease in construction. Chris will summarise the journey of Breathe Freely, describing how the campaign has engaged the construction industry and helped to drive a culture of tackling health like safety. She will discuss some of the practical tools which the campaign has generated, which are designed to upskill construction industry stakeholders to allow them to effectively manage respiratory disease risks.
More recently the campaign has broadened out to engage with the manufacturing sector, specifically to address welding. Chris will describe the recently launched welding control selector tool, which provides clear guidance on how to effectively control the respiratory risks associated with welding.
