WEBINAR REWIND: Burnout Behind the Scenes – Health & Safety Practitioners Under Pressure

Don’t worry if you missed last week’s insightful RiskPal webinar addressing the hidden signs of burnout – you can rewatch the entire session on-demand!

The pandemic started as a whirlwind before evolving into a long-drawn-out storm. For many companies, Health & Safety practitioners became the first point of contact for the provision of advice, risk assessments and response, dramatically increasing their workload and stress. The two-year pandemic elevated the importance of Health and Safety to the forefront of business resilience and staff health. Ironically, this has meant that Health & Safety people have been under enormous emotional and physical pressure to keep their businesses going, often at the cost of their own wellbeing.

The webinar features IOSH President Louise Hosking, Ruth Denyer (Co-President of IIRSM), and Michael Byrne (Group Head of Health & Safety at News UK), reflecting on the experiences of the sector and identify unresolved issues. Most importantly it focuses on realistic solutions organisations have adopted to manage burnout amongst Health & Safety practitioners.

WEBINAR: Risk assessment in a digital world

Risk Assessment is unquestionably a critical component of the safety process, but so is ensuring that the control measures defined in the Risk Assessment are in place, operative and being complied with. The latter often creates a challenges, particularly if the safety management system is difficult to access and cumbersome to use or there is no management reporting mechanism. This in itself can lead to lower levels of protection and engagement across the company.

Digitising your safety management system could be a solution. How would your safety organisation look if…

  1. Your H&S team have access to all Risk Assessments in one place, wherever they are.
  2. Your Risk Assessments produce lead performance metrics telling you how you are complying with the control measures and whether they are in place or not.
  3. You can instantly track corrective action arising from reviews, monitoring or safety audits to achieve PDCA.
  4. Your staff can be trained on your Risk Assessments on the shopfloor, sign they have read and understood the training and immediately have their training record updated.
  5. You have real-time performance data by every department and location in your organisation of compliance with your Risk Assessment.

A digital management system can create visibility, accountability and defensibility and significantly reduce time, cost and friction from your safety process.

Join our 30-minute webinar ‘Risk Assessment in a Digital World on Thursday 23 September at 11.30am to discover what a digital management system could do to enhance your safety organisation..
