Are you in a safety role or overseeing a safety team? Safety roles are arguably the hardest roles in any organisation to be effective. Every person in your company is a stakeholder, there are lots of differing expectations and you have next to no decision-making responsibility for how work happens. It’s these reasons that might make you feel unsure about how best to approach your role in your organisation and what good looks like.
Our flagship program at Safety Futures is a 15- week Advanced Safety Professional Practice online boot camp that offers a unique opportunity to learn from Dr. David Provan and his team in an immersive and practical digital platform designed to enhance the core capabilities and skills that you need to be more effective in your safety professional role.
The Advanced Safety Professional Practice program will provide you with the following benefits:
The Advanced Safety Professional Practice program will cover 5 capabilities and 20 skills that are critical to your effectiveness as a safety professional. This is not all of the skills, however with the capability you will develop in this program you will have all that you need to create a significant impact on the safety of work in your organisation. The content is deeply instructional with easy-to-understand ideas and loaded with practical examples.
You don’t make the decisions in you don’t make the decisions in your organisation that most impact safety, others do, so how do you influence them
to listen to and act on your advice? In this level
of the program you will develop skill in building relationships, humble inquiry, coaching and having difficult conversations.
When you have creating the environment where people will listen to you, then the next critical capability is to understand and foresee risk in your organisation and get something done about them. In this level of the program you will develop skill in risk psychology, risk assessment, risk reduction and control effectiveness.
After putting in place critical risk controls
the next step for you in your role is to embed repeatable business processes to institutionalise the management of work and safety in your organisation. In this level of the program you will develop skill in management systems, prescribing work, safety clutter and assurance.
Next it’s time for you to lead, drive, facilitate organisational improvement. How often have you heard people say we are on a safety journey and they are actually not going anywhere at all. In this level of the program you will develop skill in change management, diagnosing opportunities, building strategy and evaluating improvement.
If creating influence is your most important personal capability, then learning is your organisations most important capacity. Every moment of every day during every task in your organisation there is something to learn. But what processes should you use and where should you look? In this level of the program you will develop skill in understanding work, incident investigation, learning team and performance information.
The program incorporates many different learning modes combining interactive, self- paced and practical learning activities.
This is a boot camp, so there are lots of touch points, communication, core learning and extension learning opportunities. Each week
you’ll complete a minimum of 2 missions relating to the 20 core skills. Each mission involves you reviewing a short video lecture delivered by David Provan and then you will work through easy-to- follow reading material.
You will then embed this learning through undertaking workplace-based practical missions to test out your skills, respond to reflective practice questions and plan for how you might change your role to increase your effectiveness. You will interact with your peers on the program through an online message board as well as through 7 individual 2-hour interactive webinars led by Dr. David Provan. There is continuous communication, learning and technical support available.
