Acting on Warning Signs

Organisational culture - How to manage warning signs in the workplace

Organisational culture is one of the key factors why companies fail to recognise warning signs prior to workplace accidents.

This video and workshop which relates to Professor Hopkins' book Safety, Culture and Risk has been designed to assist the team in addressing key factors of collective mindfulness, group think and reporting systems, as part of a program to manage warning signs in the workplace.



Acting on Warning Signs is used by hundreds of organisations world wide including:

Centrica • Cargill• Shell • Euro Control • Tokyo Electron • BP • Kuwait National Petroleum Company and many more in all industry sectors.
