HSE initiative not working? It might be your culture. (No Harm Podcast Episode 10)

In episode 10 of the No Harm health and safety podcast, host Marvin Polis talks to Marcy Strong from VisionWorks Consulting. Marcy is an organizational effectiveness expert who has worked for national and multinational corporations.

The topic of this episode: Why is my HSE initiative not working?

Well, it may be your culture. According to Marcy, we have a heavy reliance on policies and structure in the health and safety world. She says those things are important, but not the place to start. People and relationships are the place to start. We may think that we have a policy that will drive behaviours, but relationships in worker teams have more power.
