Closing Keynote - The Hero Code

Sarah Gamble is the Chief Operating Officer of Fusion Safety.  Much of the focus on safety is around safety management systems and risk assessments, leading to structures and processes that control the work environment. Often, the way people work together is not formally considered; human interaction is overlooked and may lead to workplace cultures that are below standard. Sarah talks us through Fusion Safety's Hero Code Program and their approach!
