About this webinar

Hot on the heels of an El Niño Summer, we’ve all felt the irrefutable implications of climate change. 

As we look ahead to World Safety Day, the focus this year is on exploring how the changing climate affects workers safety and health. From extreme weather patterns and the resulting knock-on effect of a wavering landscape, we’re all having to adapt to the possibility of a future that is vastly different from what is familiar to us. 

How do you then, as a Health and Safety leader, translate these concerns when it comes to bracing your workplace and people for the inevitable impact this will have?

Join our global panel of Health and Safety leaders including Kevin Barr and Norman Ritchie, board members at the One Percent Safer organisation, as they discuss the geo-political considerations of climate change from their unique spheres of knowledge within the UK and US, respectively.

Also hear from John Green, former Head of HSW for Saudi Arabia’s NEOM / The Line project on his experiences managing risk in extreme climatic conditions. 

You’ll gain insights into practical solutions and considerations for Health and Safety professionals that can help shape and transform your approach to climate change with actionable insights that you can begin to implement in your own organisation.
