About the Event
Everyone has the right to go home safe from work every day, yet according to the HSA and Eurostat, each year more than 5,000 people lose their lives in the EU as a result of workplace incidents. In Ireland last year there were 56 fatalities. To mark European Health and Safety Week, this event gives you the opportunity to consider your approach to workplace safety.
Annette Tierney’s Theatre at Work will illustrate a safety case-study inspired by an Irish incident where behaviours merge, stress mounts and signals are missed, leading to tragic consequences. Through facilitated discussion topical safety themes are explored including risk awareness, workplace stress, accountability and elements that influence a culture of safety.
