Why You Should Attend

Safety: The Next Frontier

CILTA members will be entitled to 30CPD points upon attending the two day conference.

The cost of business is rising and so is the cost of compliance. The job of a safety professional today is not so straightforward anymore and there may be little appreciation for a job well done. The rapidly changing business environment now demands for safety to be driving value and not another cost centre to the business. To add to this, the lack of leadership support, lack of safety management skills, lack of safety ownership, accountability and behavioural issues of employees are all posing difficult questions that have no easy answer. The time has come, in fact long overdue, for those responsible for safety, to question the old governing dogmas and principles, to stop relying at what has worked in the past and embrace a modern progressive approach. The result of effective safety planning management is reduction in harm but also demonstration of business cost effectiveness.

Safety: The Next Frontier is a forum by safety professionals, for safety professionals that promises to divert you away from the run-of-the-mill discussions and bring to the forefront, experts and thought-leaders in this space, helping you find a way out of the current stasis. Maintaining a good balance between the latest cutting edge work in the safety arena and theories in the safety arena, case studies from industry practitioners and opportunities to discuss potential solutions with fellow peers experiencing similar challenges, this power packed event will guarantee you the ROI for your time and money spent!  The opportunity for improving safety as a discipline and the chance of making a difference to the work of thousands of employees should not be ignored.
