4July 29Psychological Safety and Safety Leadership

Dr. John Austin, CEO, Reaching Results

We can have the best designed safety management systems and controls, but problems still occur. All too often, employees fail to speak up or say what’s on their mind at a critical time for their team or organization. This leads to injuries, lost lives, major property damage, as well as significant monetary losses and repercussions for the next new product.

Even the most well intended supervisors miss these critical conversations and the result is not only disastrous, but often deadly. Behavioral scientist Dr. John Austin reveals the conversations you are not having and how to reduce injuries and accidents literally overnight with simple changes to the way communication occurs in your organization.
