New Webinar – Safety Culture by guest speaker Fred Sherratt. Thursday 23rd May at 12pm to 1pm

Webinar completed on Thursday 23rd May 2024.

Dr. Fred Sherratt has over ten years’ construction industry field experience, as well as over ten years’ experience in academia. A Chartered Builder and Chartered Building Engineer, she is currently Associate Director of Research at the Construction Safety Research Alliance. Fred’s research has always prioritised construction workers with a focus on their occupational safety, health and wellbeing.

Safety culture is one of the most provocative topics in the profession. But what is safety culture exactly? With seemingly endless definitions, proprietary assessment tools, and maturity models, the field of safety culture has become confusing and controversial.

During the webinar Fred will provide some insights into what Safety Culture is and isn’t, the potential dimensions of safety culture that we can observe and those we can’t. There will also be ideas about how we might at least pay attention to the right things to help us learn and improve.

Fred will demystify the concept of Safety Culture through her unique recipe for Spaghetti and Meatballs, as well as providing practical considerations for those tasked with the management of Safety Culture in the field.
