Friday, October 16, 2020 • 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM (EDT)

This interactive hour will bring together senior leaders of Environmental, Health and Safety departments to discuss the intersection of cognitive, behavioral, and human performance elements to improve safety culture and performance. This includes a focus on the attitudes-behavior-results paradigm, safety culture maturity model, five key leadership competencies, and organizational change framework. We will discuss ways to address these concepts as well as increasing leadership buy-in and employee safety engagement.
