Safety Forward:
Embracing Change to Save Lives

Virtual, Instructor-Led

Event Overview

Discover a groundbreaking opportunity brought to you by Jennifer Bailey, a safety expert from CenterPoint Energy, exclusively for members and friends of Southern Gas Association. Get ready to witness a seismic shift in your understanding of safety as we delve into the highest-ranked breakout session from this year’s Management Conference.

Risk forgetting the conventional safety wisdom built upon Heinrich’s safety triangle. Are we truly confident in its accuracy and effectiveness? Surprisingly, even Heinrich himself expressed doubts about this theory in the 1959 edition of his book. In light of the persisting fatality incidents across the United States, it is evident that a crucial piece of the safety puzzle remains elusive. It’s time to break free from the shackles of traditional thinking and explore new horizons.

Jennifer Bailey’s presents a strategy that is poised to challenge everything you thought you knew about safety practices. Prepare for a mind-bending journey that will upend your preconceptions and revolutionize your approach to safety. Brace yourself for a paradigm shift as we introduce you to a Serious Injury and Fatality (SIF) based approach that is sweeping through natural gas organizations, igniting a wave of positive change.

In this engaging class, you will:

  • Discover the Missing Link: Uncover the critical element absent from traditional safety approaches, preventing us from achieving our fatality prevention goals.
  • Embrace New Frontiers: Explore cutting-edge ideas, methods, and practices that are reshaping the safety landscape, paving the way for unprecedented progress.
  • Challenge the Status Quo: Break free from the limitations of outdated safety paradigms and reimagine safety protocols from the ground up.
  • Experience Transformation: Engage in a dynamic learning environment that encourages interaction, hands-on exercises, and thought-provoking discussions, enabling you to implement change immediately.

Join us as we embark on a daring quest to transform safety culture and prevent future tragedies. Jennifer Bailey’s dynamic and captivating presentation will equip you with the tools and knowledge to revolutionize your organization’s safety practices. Be part of this bold movement and secure your spot now!
