SYM17 (Formerly S29) - Forget the old safety framework approach:  Go for a great place to work

Procedures, processes, and risk assessments are only one way to improve OSH. Beyond the old safety framework approach, what is crucial is to create a culture which translates OSH into something tangible, related to daily life of workers. The session will draw on practical experiences to demonstrate the potential of strong workplace OSH culture to support OSH performance and business success.
