NZISM is proud to feature Dr Todd Conklin, Ph.D, an internationally recognised expert in Organisational Culture and Behaviour and Human Performance.

Dr Conklin works with organisations that perform high-risk, high-consequence activities in ensuring that the interface between the organisation’s work control systems and the organisation’s workers are crafted in such a way as to create system influences and expected performances and to prevent unexpected events.

This is an opportunity to hear one of the most engaging and entertaining H&S speakers of our time. Our series of seminars will feature Dr Conklin presenting on how technology has added new dimensions to how we as human beings react to our surroundings and how the new view approach to safety management can make an improved difference.

When an accident happens in a company, it is considered a “failure.” Provisions are made to look in hindsight at causes for the failure, usually finding out who is to blame. In the new Safety II view, “failure” is redefined. Rather than looking at the accident in hindsight, workers and management process the situation with the idea that accidents will happen because work is performed by humans…and we are not perfect. Therefore, how can we minimize the consequences, save lives and save money in the process. Changes in actions and attitudes are required in dealing with safety issues.

The Safety II view is creating excitement and new energy in the safety fields. Progress is being made in examining the journey that it takes to make these changes in management of the company’s systems and the workers’ behaviours…in parallel.

A published author of a number of ground breaking books and is the host of arguably the best safety podcast on the planet, PreAccident Investigation Podcast, NZISM are privileged to be hosting Dr Conklin at our upcoming roadshow.
