Presented by David Provan and Kym Bancroft
Safety II principles and ideas are increasingly being explored by organisations as they seek to further improve their safety performance and re-shape their safety practices and culture. There is however some misunderstanding about what Safety II is and how it is different from our traditional ‘Safety I’ approach.
Dr David Provan explains the key aspects of Safety II and what they mean for the way we think about managing our organisations. There are now many organisations internationally with implementation experience of Safety II. Urban Utilities is one of the leading organisations who has been implementing Safety II for several years. Kym Bancroft shares their story and what they have practically done directly in relation to the key aspects presented by David.
