Keynote: Mental Health 2.0

It is critical that we reduce stigma and discrimination, increase and improve literacy, recognize MH issues and provide support. But that’s not enough. Of course we must support those in need, but that is a tough sell and easy to achieve an acceptable, low bar. If we can identify a need for, create, develop, sustain mental fitness, individually and organizationally, we improve every single thing we do. We reduce the likelihood an incidence of work related stress and other MH issues, we increase productivity and quality, reduce absence, quicker returns to the workplace, reduce labor and staff churn, attract high performing staff, improve safety performance. Win, win, win. That is how to get the attention of the controlling minds. Beginning the conversation, whilst difficult, becomes easier. What comes next is really hard.

14:00 – 18:00

Professor Sidney Dekker – Workshop

‘Safety differently’ is about relying on people’s expertise, insights and the dignity of work as actually done to improve safety and efficiency. It is about halting or pushing back on the ever-expanding bureaucratization and compliance of work. The cost of compliance and bureaucracy can be mind-boggling—up to 10% of GDP, with every person working some 8 weeks per year just to cover the cost of compliance, paperwork and bureaucratic accountability demands. This is non-productive time. It has also stopped progressing safety. Over the last two decades, safety improvements have flatlined (as measured in fatalities and serious injury rates, for instance) despite a vast expansion of compliance and bureaucracy.
