SIRF SAFETY Innovations Roundtable

SIRF SAFETY Innovations Roundtable

SIRF Op  Ex  Roundtable
28th June 2017

Mantra on TullamarineSafety innovation is becoming an increasingly important component of workplace safety management.

 Innovation, whether in processes, technology or approaches to people, is helping to identify and solve chronic safety problems. Just as technological innovations such as cloud computing or mobile devices have transformed our way of doing business every day, innovation is also transforming the way we look at and deal with people’s safety.

It is not just the creation of new programs and processes, but the existence of an organisational safety culture where such innovations can be created and developed.
In this roundtable we will be hearing from organisations that have developed or are developing creative programs, processes or leveraging new technologies for improving workplace safety. We will also discuss how these organisations have effectively integrated these changes throughout the organisation, and in so doing created an innovative safety culture.
