Dr. David Provan discusses Safety II and how it might transform the roles of safety professionals going forward
Organisations invest considerable resources in dedicated safety roles, teams and entire safety departments in the pursuit of understanding and managing safety risk. However, 30 years of research concludes that safety practitioners are largely not performing this role effectively in practice.
This webinar explains how we can use emerging theories of Safety II, Resilience Engineering and Safety Differently to transform the purpose, tasks and activities of safety practitioners to help them create foresight about the changing shape of risk, and facilitate action in their organisations before people are harmed.

How Does myosh Work?
myosh is a cloud based workplace health and safety platform that works with you and your team.
Over 50 configurable modules integrate to collect HSEQ data.
Modules are used to manage hazards, investigate incidents, manage risk, conduct audits and much more.
Our mobile app is used for fast data capture in the field, online or offline. Features include QR code scanning, digital signatures, Geo Locations and Geo Fencing, pdf export and more. You can configure mobile forms, visibility and functionality in your Administration panel
The myosh Dashboard provides powerful organisational insight by transforming your hseq data into intelligent visual charts, marps and tables. Up to date data is derived from modules and displayed in an interactive visual format, configured specifically for you and your team.
myosh is built on the Viking PaaS, a super configurable platform with powerful capabilities. Teams can quickly and easily configure the platform to their own very unique end to end process requirements.
We encourage you to treat your software technology like a team member. The myosh academy is designed to empower your team with the skills to ensure they use their software tools productively. Everyone learns differently, so the academy holds a variety of resources including videos, guided learning and verified online learning courses for each myosh module.
Your investment in myosh helps you and your team manage risk, compliance and improve workplace health and safety. Today, successful organisations view safety as an asset, and health and safety spending as an investment. This is because a safe workplace adds measurable business value, and can drive tangible improvements in performance, profit, and culture.
