Ron Gantt, CSP/CET/ARM

October 13, 2017
Hs Lordships, Berkeley, CA

Tired of seeing your safety programs stagnate? This session will provide a new perspective on safety excellence based on Safety Differently. This is not a silver bullet or another ?avor of the month. Safety Differently aligns with the goals of the organization providing new solutions to old safety problems.

Current safety management approaches are based on outdated models of organizational management and human performance, some over 100 years old. No wonder while the world changes ever more rapidly, the safety profession is seeing diminishing returns for our efforts. Yet, we continue to press ahead, doing what we've always done, and getting what we've always gotten.

This session will introduce a new model of safety management - Safety Differently. Based on decades of research and practice in high risk industries, Safety Differently provides a new way to approach safety problems and a new set of tools for the safety professional.
