Are you keeping pace with change and tackling the problems of
tomorrow today? The new and emerging health and safety challenges
that come with social, economic and technological change
- Workforce trends - an ageing population, changing work
patterns, workforce diversity (from veterans to Generation Z)
- Low carbon economy - are 'green jobs' safe jobs?
- The energy challenge - increased demand, aging infrastructure,
increases in distributed generation
- Smart technologies - automation, robotics and artificial
Anticipating and tackling the potential impact of these changes
is not about discovering obscure and unlikely risks but rather
ensuring that workplace health and safety considerations do not act
as unnecessary barriers to future growth.
In this one day workshop we will introduce to you to the work of
the HSL Foresight Centre and show how companies can benefit from
anticipating and adapting to the changing world. Delegates
will be introduced to a range of practical techniques to identify
future challenges and opportunities.
The workshop will cover
- Megatrends - what are they, where do they come from, why do
they matter and how do they impact on risks management?
- How to identify relevant sub-trends and balance conflicting
priorities using a simple prioritisation tool.
- Explore the power of scenarios to understand the impact of
possible futures on strategic plans.
- Using 'snap-shot workshops' as a catalyst for colleagues and
stakeholders to engage, join the dots and consider opportunities
and threats in a strategic context.
- Tools for making sense of anticipated future changes and
introduction to how HSE's Foresight Team can provide help,
tailored for your organisation.
By the end of the session, you will have an awareness and
appreciation of the relevance and practicality of anticipating and
making sense of future changes and their potential impact on health
