On Thursday, September 14th in Dublin’s Aviva Stadium, 3M’s Personal Safety Division are holding the first ever Irish Safety Network Live event. Following the success of 2016’s Safety Network Live events, that took place all around the UK, 3M Personal Safety are taking their educational day of thought-provoking seminars, workshops, and presentations to Ireland. This is a free event aimed at all those in the Health & Safety Industry, and will cover and discuss several key industry topics over the course of the day.
This year’s agenda will include:
- Messages with Impact – Body Talk
Ever wondered how to win over your audience? The Communication Specialist at Body Talk will show you how to do just that in a lively, interactive one hour session. You’ll learn how to apply the same principles that script and screen writers use to hook people in and compel them to listen, and you’ll take away some simple tools to boost your communications in your everyday interactions.
- Improving Mental Health at Work – HSE
A Chartered Phycologist at the Health and Safety Executive’s laboratory in Buxton will discuss how to recognise and tackle workplace stress during this one hour presentation. You’ll learn what stress is and the impact it can have on your business and the UK economy, and gain knowledge of how to conduct risk assessments for stress. In addition, you’ll take away hints and tips for tackling stress at the organisational level.
- Science of Safety – Rob Brill, Technical Manager, 3M UK&I
Rob Brill is the Technical Manager for 3M’s Personal Safety Division in the UK and Ireland, who leads a group of PPE and Safety Technical Specialists who are responsible for providing expert technical advice to 3M’s customers and internal teams on the correct selection, use and maintenance of 3M’s PPE. During this 45 minute session, Rob will discuss 3M’s Science of Safety approach to improving PPE compliance in the workplace and the three main pillars that its made up of Selection, Training & Use, and Fit and Validation. This session will also explore the use of various tools and techniques within these pillars to help assess and improve PPE compliance in your organisation.
- Fall Protection and Confined Space Access – Stephen Morris, Fall Protection Technical Specialist, 3M UK&I
- Interactive Session on Workplace Safety – 2 Mac’s
This excellent session will focus on how people’s behaviour and some of the day to day demands of work can cloud our judgement in relation to safety. It will show how time/work pressures and low risk perceptions can lead to unsafe acts and ultimately injury. Participants will be encouraged to interact with live actors and help them explore a range of effective behavioural strategies for resolving difficult safety based issues.
