safety self-awareness: a new tool to help leaders reduce human error and decrease incidents
- Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
Everyone knows we have an IQ. Some people know we have an EQ, which measures emotional intelligence. But did you know we all have a built-in intelligence around Risk?
This 60-minute keynote session reveals the link between personality and risk tolerance due to each person’s innate safety intelligence (SQ™). These are our natural “default settings” of being Impulsive vs. Cautious, Distractible vs. Focused, Defiant vs. Compliant, and more. Studies show that up to 95% of incidents are caused by human error—not equipment failure, lack of standard operating procedures, or improper training. Progressive leaders are looking at the human factor in the safety equation.
However, unlike some other behavioural-based safety concepts which focus on observing current behaviours, and “blaming the worker,” Greg will show how leaders can first predict future behaviours using proven psychometrics and then combine that with traditional methods of employee development and leadership coaching.
Participants can take the unique Safety Quotient (SQ) assessment ahead of time and learn their own strengths and risks in the key personality areas related to safety. During the session, Greg will then teach how “safety self-awareness” leads to self-monitoring and safer choices—which of course results in fewer incidents and injuries and helps create a culture of safety excellence.

Everyone uses the term “corporate culture,’ but it’s hard to get an accurate read on what is really going on. And it’s even more difficult knowing what to do with the results of a perception survey, and how to deliver organizational change.
What is a Culture Survey? In this talk, Greg will explain how an employee engagement survey is a diagnostic tool that measures your internal alignment—or gap—between what leaders think is going on in the organization and what is actually going on.
Greg Ford will show how results from internal employees can be compared with external aggregate industry data so leaders can see how they stack up against other companies. Finally, Greg will share how real companies are using practical recommendations for meaningful and lasting change.
If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it, right? The business intelligence in a culture report (snapshots below) provides decision support around hiring, team assignments, safety training, safety audit programs and more. A safer culture ensures happier, more engaged, and more productive employees who feel that the company is looking out for them!
