Getting cut-through on health and safety can be difficult for many organisations. People tend to switch off and think that workplace injuries or incidents will never happen to them. As keynote speaker at our recent Health & Safety Representative Conference, Connie Henson gave our reps a fresh perspective on safety and wellbeing, and revealed some new techniques to help them engage with their leaders, colleagues and teams. The great thing about Connie’s presentation was that it was real, relevant and engaging. She explained how the brain works under pressure – why safety is not always front of mind for our people and how we can start to make safety a habit. Connie used case studies and humour to bring these concepts to life and focussed on both the physical and psychological elements of safety. She got people thinking and talking about safety from the inside out!
