Pre-Conference Workshops

Accident Investigations and Learning Teams for Joint Health & Safety Committees | Jeffery Lyth 

April 30 | 8:00AM - 5:00PM | $425.00

This workshop will explore current legislative requirements as well as new and emerging concepts regarding how organizations learn from incidents and accidents. While it is critically important for employers to investigate workplace incidents in accordance with the Workers Compensation Act, there is mounting evidence that this approach does not provide sufficient learning to enable companies to effectively prevent reoccurence. Learning outcomes will include a better understanding of accident investigation process and requirements, as well as an expanded view of what it means to be a learning organization in the current context.

Learning objectives:

  • Walk through the landscape of OH&S developments in 2018 and illustrate protective versus productive views of safety
  • Review standard accident investigation requirements, challenges, issues and outcomes
  • Introduce the concept of Human and Organizational Performance (HOP), particularly the ‘Learning Teams’ model

The Difference Between Work-as-Imagined and Work-as-Done | Robert de Boer 

April 30 | 8:00AM – 12:00PM | $250.00

Attendees will investigate how work as prescribed in rules and procedures (Work-as-Imagined) differs from how it is done in practice (Work-as-Done). These often differ, but not because people intend to do harm. After a short theoretical explanation, attendees will investigate the gap between the two by working through an Oil & Gas case study. Attendees are encouraged to bring forward their cases for group discussion and perhaps challenge their own biases.

Learning objectives:

  • There is always a gap between Work-as-Done and Work-as-Imagined - even if we don't want to see it
  • We can learn from the gap, even (or particularly) when things go right
  • When this gap is large, the goals that we strive for with rules and procedures in the first place don’t get realised
  • Steps can be taken to close the gap
