Health and Safety Executive Update: Leading a People First Culture
Good Governance practice
A positive and active health and safety culture is a business must. It will increase your business profile and economic returns; your workers will be more productive, spend less time away from work and be more engaged. This must build from the boardroom. Safety leadership begins at the top.
This executive update will give senior leaders the tools to influence a positive change, to not only ensure due diligence but empower the workforce to enable change.
We will see how world-class safety leaders:
- Clarify their vision and focus
- Understand health and safety is an investment
- Get personally involved
- Engage their organisation
- Let their people get on with it
This is your opportunity to meet local and national business leaders and learn from their journey. This is your chance to reflect on your own safety governance conversations and share your learning experiences.
There will be a Q&A opportunity following the update.
- Francois Barton, Executive Director, Business Leaders’ Health and Safety Forum
- Andrew Priest, Chief Executive of Ngai Tahu Farming
- Malika Rose, Health and Safety Manager, AJ Hackett
Prior to joining the Forum Francois established and ran WorkSafe NZ’s national programme team, which has delivered major safety campaigns in construction, agriculture, forestry and manufacturing.
He previously held roles at MBIE - including being involved in early discussions that led to the development of the Canterbury Safety Rebuild Charter - and at the Department of Labour, where he was part of the team that set up the Forum in 2010.
Prior to joining Ngāi Tahu in July 2015, Andrew had his own consulting practice with an emphasis on strategy formulation, performance improvement, risk management, and organisational alignment, across a range of industries encompassing forestry and wood products, energy, agriculture, retail banking, high-tech and the post-earthquake Christchurch rebuild.
