Overview

Everyone has the right to go home safe from work every day yet, according to Eurostat, each year more than 5,000 people lose their lives in the EU as a result of workplace incidents.  In the construction sector incidents and fatalities continue to happen and working at height is a key area of focus when it comes to safety.

Annette Tierney’s Theatre at Work will illustrate a safety case-study inspired by an Irish incident set in the construction sector, working at height.  The session illustrates how the smallest actions, or inactions, can have major consequences when it comes to workplace safety and how easily our world can be destroyed.  Through facilitated discussion topical safety themes are explored including responsibility, safety conversations and some of the human factors that influence a culture of safety on site.
