As Distinguished Lecturer Robin Sheremeta will present:
Courageous Safety Leadership

The most significant component in the development of a culture of safety at Elk Valley Coal has been the Courageous Leadership program. This is a program with roots in other organizations and has been used effectively to provide a catalyst for change within a culture. The message is powerful, and when people truly understand what it means to be a courageous leader, the impact in safety is profound. Taking previous work of others and applying it to two operations at Elk Valley Valley Coal had significant results. As of January, 2008, both operations have gone over 1.5 million man hours without a lost time injury.
