Safety Culture Event on March 29th 2019.

Take some time in the company of Beehive, and in Brathay's unique learning environment, to discuss the most important developments in safety with other interested and like-minded people.


"To be leaders in safety we need to be experts in people" - Dr Rob Long,Riskex.com

Dr Long's quotation perfectly captures the central message of the day. During the event we explore:

· Some of the implications of ISO 45001 and recent changes to health and safety legislation in the UK

· The results of Beehive’s research with Bangor University into safety culture

· The benefits to safety of immersive behavioural safety training in the outdoors.

· The importance of trust and trustworthiness to safety

Beehive’s next free safety culture event: 'Change the conversation, change the culture', will be on March 29th 2019.


Introducing the Hudson Curve, we show the enormous reductions in accidents and injury rates that have been achieved by the development of safety processes and procedures, regulation and training since the 1950s and 60s, with associated improvements in productivity. We then refer to the Bradley Curve Model of safety culture transformation and explore how, to achieve the next stages of safety culture – independence and interdependence – requires a new approach to safety education. We explain how it is not simply behaviours, but how those behaviours change people’s attitudes towards their own accountability, relationships and trust, that will trigger the next big transformation in safety. Finally we introduce the D2iT – our unique trust-based safety culture model, developed in partnership with the Wales centre for Behaviour Change, part of Bangor University's Psychology Department. The model is continually being updated and developed.


The feedback from previous events included the comment - 'looks like the future'. That's exactly the message we aim to get across.

This open event (though places are limited so please book) is free for managers and leaders from high reliability/safety critical sectors with responsibility for/interest in OHS, Human Performance and safety culture. Accommodation the night before at Brathay is available and those staying the night before can join us and fellow attendees for an informal dinner on the evening of March 28th.

Take some time in the company of Beehive, and in Brathay's unique learning environment, to discuss the most important developments in safety with other interested and like-minded people.
