Safety professionals are change agents. You create change at all levels of the organisation. At an individual level, you influence personnel to change the way they work. At a business level you change the way the business unit operates and at an organisational level you change the way the organisation carries out its business. In addition, you need to be aware of and be able and willing to discuss the safety impact of proposed changes initiated in other parts of the business. 

This 2-day Change Management workshop for Safety Professionals program is designed to support your development and implementation of change at all levels of your organisation from changing procedures to changing culture. You will learn about  the integrated nature of organisational change, the steps involved in change and ways to manage resistance. As we recognise change only occurs through people, the course focus is on the human aspect of change initiatives.
