Safety & Health Expo 2019: courage and risk – a different perspective @SHExpo

Eddie the Eagle and SafeStart UK founder, Larry Wilson, co-present in the Keynote Theatre at SHExpo 2019Can you reduce human error and eliminate up to 95% of workplace injuries? Join Eddie the Eagle, former British Olympic Ski Jumper, and Larry Wilson, CEO and author of SafeStart International, at SHExpo this June for the answer. The safety duo will address the topic of courage and risk at this year’s Safety & Health Expo 2019, Wednesday 19th June, ExCeL London UK Keynote Theatre, 11:30 – 12:30.

The majority of common workplace injuries happen in everyday situations. Health & Safety Managers will understand that rushing, frustration, fatigue and complacency are normal states you will face in the working day, however, what most do not realise is that this state-to-error risk pattern is responsible for more than 95% of all injuries.

Eddie the Eagle and Larry Wilson will present how organisations can tackle these common safety pain points, moving beyond compliance and reducing the common causes of workplace injuries.

SafeStart, the number one safety-training programme worldwide, addresses everyday safety issues experienced by managers and the perceived conflict between production and safety. Instead of focusing on the hazard, SafeStart focuses on the state of mind that the individual is in and how this could lead to an incident occurring.

The SafeStart programme has been successfully implemented in 64 countries and 32 languages, across 10,000 worksites, with more than 3 million people trained. SafeStart is relevant to everyone, everywhere. Larry Wilson said, “Eddie and I look forward to meeting delegates at Safety & Health Expo this year. We look at safety in a totally new way, and our presentation will demonstrate how to tackle risk head on giving individuals the solution to improve their safety both at work and home.”

Eddie and Larry will be joining fellow inspirational speakers, Jonny Wilkinson and Steph McGovern. Eddie and Larry will also be hosting a meet and greet and book signing session on the SafeStart stand SH2045 after their presentation on Wednesday 19th June.
