Health, safety and wellbeing is more important than ever. With COVID-19 transforming the way think about personal safety and wellness at work, and the profession coming under scrutiny in the media, the need for a better and more thorough understanding of health and safety has never been greater. Health and safety practitioners must grasp the opportunity presented to them through being in the spotlight and use it to influence change in increasing workplace safety.
That’s why SHP, the number one source for health and safety content, is launching the Safety & Health Podcast to deliver the news, insights and legislation through interviews, discussions and panel debates with some of the profession’s leaders, influencers and innovators.
Episode 1, launched Thursday 23 July, will feature an exclusive interview with SHP readers’ Most Influential Person in Health & Safety, Thames Water’s Chief Health, Safety and Security Officer, Karl Simons. The episode, hosted by SHP Editor Ian Hart, will see Karl discuss his role in lobbying government for changes in the way mental ill health is viewed in the workplace, how Thames Water reduced work-related illness by 78%, how public perception and accolades help the company, and his role in SHP’s Rising Stars initiative.
It will be followed by Episode 2, which focusses on a discussion about burnout, perfectionism and how to deal with burnout as an individual, as management and as an organisation. It features a discussion between business owner and mental health trainer Heather Beach and award-winning mental health nurse and cognitive behavioural coach, Stacy Thomson, who provide insight on how to tackle burnout and why mental health is such a taboo subject, particularly in the workplace.
Tune in to discover the latest issues facing the health and safety profession and stay on-top of the developments affecting your role, from working at height, lone working and common workplace hazards, to safety culture, behaviours, occupational health and mental health and wellbeing.
