Brad Ness OAM - 4 time Paralympian and Captain of the Australian Men’s Wheelchair Basketball Team - Keynote address: Cultural safety in the workplace

  1. 1. Cultural Safety in the Workplace Presented By Brad Ness O.A.M
  2. 2. Split Second
  3. 3. Getting Back to work was crucial
  4. 4. Importance of Culture Culture in the workplace • A culture exists in your organization but is it the one you want? • Culture is built on Values, behaviors, attitude traditions and beliefs (F.L.F, no dead time) • Up to you to create an intentional culture by design, not by chance • Hiring “A” Players who mirror the values. • Culture needs to be driven
  5. 5. Understanding Cultural Leadership Leadership • The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I.” And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say “I.” They don’t think “I.” They think “we”; they think “team.” They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but “we” gets the credit….This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done. Peter Drucker • Pride “V” Proud..... I “v” Us • No “I” in Team. • Do as I say and not as I do.....
  6. 6. Culture + Leadership = C.L Why is it Important? Upholds core Values of the group and it…… • Creates Team Work • Implements Change • Builds Honesty • Constructs open communication • Results in Respecting each others Roles and Responsibilities.
  7. 7. Cultural Leadership How do we get it? • People have to buy into the system (“A” Players) – Rollers no fines. • Everyone has ownership • You have to build/encourage individual ownership • Johnny leads from the front, carries the team on his shoulders (free ride for the others) • Pods – old style leader, rotating Captains to Pods
  8. 8. Saving Lives “If you feel at any time that the activity, vehicle, item of plant or work situation is unsafe… stop work immediately, make it safe, and report to your manager”
  9. 9. JSA- Job Safety Analysis • Biggest mistakes happen at this stage “WHY” • Not doing proper risk assessment • When doing a risk assessment rushing • Not doing a risk assessment at all
  10. 10. Job Safety Analysis
  11. 11. Reporting • Reporting encouraging the culture to step up the reporting • Reporting in time • Reporting on time • Not reporting “v” reporting • No blame culture – Old school culture
  12. 12. Work Safety  It can happen to anyone at any time  Everyone must take responsibility all have jobs to do - CEO - Safety Officers
  13. 13. Work Safety Is Everyone’s Responsibility
  14. 14. Choice
