Training Introduction

Recent advances in human error management based on alertness creation dovetail seamlessly with holistic and coordinated approaches to risk management. This two day course covers the recent advances in understanding why people make physical and cognitive mistakes and what pro-active and proportionate steps can be taken to pro-actively manage that risk.

By the end of this MasterClass, the participants will:

• Have been introduced to a holistic model of thriving allowing an understanding of why ‘good work is good for you’ and what ‘good work’ is.
• Understand the full range of root causes of error from mistakes of strategic thinking, through missing opportunities to empower and create a strong positive culture … to simply tripping over.
• Understand that culture is behavior, behavior is culture and exactly why ‘culture is king’.
• Understand how the basic mechanics of creating a culture of excellence relate to the key habits of the most successful team leaders and team members …
• Understand how to measure and benchmark organizational wellbeing and safety culture to identify weak areas and track progress.
• Be introduced to the latest technologies for measuring the levels and causes of day to day alertness.

Training Description

The style of the course is highly interactive. For example, an early flip chart exercise it to get the delegates to define excellent safety leadership in their own words. The output always proves close to 100% generic (see Day 2) and delegate’s own definitions of excellence will be referred back to frequently as the course progresses. Please note that the soft skills element of the course mirrors the content of the soon to be released NEBOSH qualification (well the scope Anker and Marsh wrote for and agreed with the Nebosh leadership. It’s currently with committees).

Case Study – CBRE Data Centers

CBRE Data Centre Solutions (DCS) is the leading provider of full-spectrum life cycle services to data centre owners, occupiers, and investors. DCS supports customers through consulting services, project management, and integrated data centre operations. A new approach to risk was needed to fully support the sustainable growth of a business specialising in highly critical environments. Adam Wilkinson has been developing the integrated risk model, taking a holistic view of risk to drive efficiency and increase employee buy in. By looking at aspects like operations, people, health, safety, wellbeing, commercial, and environmental risk collectively, significant advances have been made in the effectiveness of risk reduction. The DCS Human Factors Programme, which Adam will present as a case study, is an example of this joined up thinking which has bought tangible benefit to the business. Drawing inspiration from CBRE’s own implementation of ISO 45001, one of the first 10 companies in the world to do so, Wilkinson has developed a holistic risk model for data centre clients, based on operational risk management, a learning culture and management of human factors. A keen athlete, Wilkinson brought his knowledge of using nutrition, hydration and sleep to improve athletic performance to the course content. Applying these insights to managing fatigue and alertness in data centres, which are staffed 24 hours a day in climate-controlled conditions, gave the course an additional element alongside its focus on wellbeing, mindfulness and mental health.

  1. Get the timing right.
    Many people are afraid to request for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for it, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, he/she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture.
  2. Make a case for yourself
    When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details and explanations about what is in it for the company and you’re superior. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points:
    1. Start by stating your accomplishments
    2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn
    3. Describe:
    a) How this event will increase your productivity?
    b) How you will need less supervision
    c) How you can bring back the knowledge to the company
    4. Follow up
You might find free to attend events which are usually organized by a solution/service provider within the industry. Unlike at free to attend events, on a paid event you will find more diverse industry knowledge rather than presentations related to services or solutions.
In case you cannot attend for both days, you can always attend for just 1 day of the event. In this case we will send you all presentations of the 2 days. The participation fee is 70% of the original investment. In case you would like to attend the event for just 1 day please contact us on booking[at]glceurope.com
In case you are busy on 1 of the days, you certainly can split the 2 day conference with one of your colleague. All you need to do is send us an e-mail to booking[at]glceurope.com
We understand that not all senior-level professionals might be available on the dates. As the event is an annual event, most of the attendees try to postpone their engagements or send a small group from their teams to benefit from the conference.
