Building the Next Generation of Safety Leaders

Andrew Russell – Managing Director, Actrua


The Safety Leader of the future will be different to the Safety Leader of today. How different? We predict the role will be vastly different.

The term VUCA that was created by the US Military is used to describe a workplace that is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. This is the work environment that many Safety Leaders face today. But are they adequately prepared to deal with it? No!

Globalisation and digitisation are just two factors creating significant impacts on a changing workplace. We are already witnessing widespread mental health issues due to the changes we face, not only at work, but in the home and community also.

In this presentation we will discuss strategies to nurture and develop our Safety Leaders of the future. Not only for their own personal wellbeing, but for the health and safety of the organisations that they lead.

We will discuss the 70 – 20 – 10 principle of learning and development, share successful case studies and explore the contribution of formal learning, coaching, mentoring and perhaps most importantly, the influence of role models.
