Dominic Cooper Workshop – Pragmatic Considerations for Reducing SIFs


Over time, the rate of recordable workplace injuries is declining, but the rate of serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs) has either flatlined or is increasing. Industry has worked hard to reduce the number of incidents, but many wonder what is being overlooked that is still causing these catastrophic events. Based on field research this workshop promotes a proactive approach to prevention by focusing on the potentials for an injury, and explores the approach from an organisational perspective.

– Discover the principles for a successful SIF process,

– Develop a structure to consistently identify potential SIFs

– Link precursors and exposure categories to underlying safety culture attributes

– Head off problems before they occur
