Mentorship in Safety: A Mentor-Mentee Phase Model

This presentation seeks to look at the mentoring relationship from a new perspective rather than the traditionally accepted and oversimplified older to younger, experienced to inexperienced, or manager to employee views. Through an evaluation of the usage of the term mentor in both the canons of professional safety and classic literature, key examples of exemplary mentors can be identified and studied.

Through this study, key characteristics of the people and relationships can be explored in order to determine how these characteristics influence the outcome of the relationship and invididvidual growth. Participants will be invited to additionally see how these characteristics apply to the mentoring relationships they encounter. Following this exploration of key characteristics, a Mentor: Mentee Phase Model will be introduced to illustrate the success it affords constructing strong mentoring relationships. We will highlight the value of the of the Phase Model to both the mentor and mentee. This model will serve as an overview of the journey that both the mentor and mentee take as they make a covenant and embark on this growth journey together. Key points in the relationship will be enumerated as well as how to progress as obstacles arise.

Creating a Breakthrough, Inclusive Performance Culture

By definition, culture is “the ideas, customs, and social behavior of a particular people or society.”

An inclusive culture is one that embraces and celebrates each contributor’s differences – differences in experiences, backgrounds, and ways of thinking. There’s a lot of research indicating that inclusive businesses have more highly engaged, motivated, and productive workforces.  This session discusses the critical role of leadership in creating a truly inclusive environment through cultural awareness and cultural competency.

Mental Health: A Journey of Influence

Join Global Vice President of HSE, Paul Hendry, as he charts the complexities of implementing a mental health program throughout a workforce of 60,000. Hear how Jacobs went from running a positive mental health workshop for 16 employees in 2016 to running the “World’s Biggest Mental Health Check-In”, using their freely available One Million Lives tool in 2022. Through this powerful and insightful presentation, you will learn how mentally fit people are safer, make better decisions, and ultimately create greater returns on investment.  This journey has not been without its challenges and bumps in the road; however, that return on investment is now measurable, and there is clear evidence of the positive impact investing in a mental health program can bring to both organizations and individuals.

Electrical Safety SIF Detection & Solutions, Grainger

Join us for the fourth webinar in Grainger’s Serious Injuries and Fatalities (SIFs) webinar series. Paul Zoubek with Zoubek Consulting, LLC and Jason Weatherford with Grainger will be sharing electrical safety insights focused on preventing and mitigating serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs).

According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) there were 166 electrical fatalities in 2019, which was a 3.75% increase over 2018 and the highest number of electrical fatalities since 2011. There were also 1,900 nonfatal electrical injuries involving days away from work. This was a 22% increase over 2018. The median number of days away from work for nonfatal electrical injuries was 9 in 2019, a 125% increase over 2018.

Every organization has unique working on or near live electricity needs and circumstances / options that must be evaluated so that proper controls can be put in place to eliminate or reduce the potential for serious injuries and fatalities (SIFs).

At the conclusion of this Webinar, you will have a better understanding of:

  • Relationship between OSHA’s electrical standards and NFPA 70E
  • Evolution of NFPA 70E
  • Common working on or near live circuit tasks
  • Causes of arc flash / blast incidents
  • Critical controls that are needed to reduce serious injury and fatality potential
  • Grainger’s solution to help keep your people safe

Interview Prep: The 5×5 Model

Why do we have to interview? – By far, the most significant factor in failures of job interviewing is directly tied to a lack of preparation. While most people think they can just “wing it,” few are really capable of this level of spontaneous conversation. Preparing for your upcoming interview is at least equally important to what happens DURING the interview. Come learn the 5×5 interview prep model before your next interview!
