    RUBY WAX - Mental Health in the Workplace

    She's been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness; once crazy now less so, she gives a tour of the mind – how to use it, not lose it; and how to make sure that your workforce have the best chance of maintaining healthy minds. Ruby looks at how mental health can be a factor when under stress at work, and how to manage those who could be at greater risk. Ruby graduated from Oxford with a Masters in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (at a late stage) three years ago and has released a number of books on the subject, including her most recent work ‘A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled’.

Stephen Morris, Fall Protection technical specialist at 3M discusses the issues that face people who work at height or manage teams who work at height, and explains what to look for in personal fall protection equipment (PFPE).

    Interactive Session on Workplace Safety - 2 Mac's

    In a dramatic scenario, the content will focus on how people’s behaviour and some of the day to day demands of work can cloud our judgement in relation to safety. It will show how time/work pressures and low risk perceptions can lead to unsafe acts and ultimately injury. Engaging with and directing the characters, participants will explore a range of effective behavioural strategies for resolving difficult safety based issues. These strategies will demonstrate prevalent mind-sets regarding people’s perception of safety.
