The human cost of not speaking up. Psychological safety – not just nice but necessary! Naomi Armitage

In this thought-provoking presentation, Naomi will look at how fostering a culture of health and safety is no longer seen as a nice to have, but a necessity and foundation for the overall performance of a business. And in this current climate, now more than ever, it’s critical for organisations to manage health and safety risk by designing psychologically safe work environments.

With over 20 years’ experience owning and operating a nation-wide employee assistance and fitness for work company, Naomi will look at what psychological safety is, the benefits your work environment can achieve and the key correlation it has to individual wellbeing, safety performance, productivity and innovation. She will also share some recent applications of psychological safety in the workplace and the power it has in action along with the implications for future health and safety organisational interventions.
