Renewables Sector - Is Safety Different? [#019]
The renewable energy sector has unique risks, but is it overall much safer than the fossil fuel industry? The renewable energy sector is like any other in that it poses occupational threats to workers, people in positions of authority must assess where problems lie and take decisive steps to minimise risks. People in the renewable energy sector encounter some of the same workplace dangers as those in other industries. However, certain factors, such as the height of wind turbines, may increase accident likelihood. Renewables Definition (Cambridge Dictionary): "types of energy such as wind power and power from the sun that can be replaced as quickly as they are used". 🙏 ABOUT THESE SHOWS: https://www.redrisks.com/redrisks_live/ 🎬 SCHEDULED LIVE EVENTS: https://www.redrisks.com/upcoming-events/ 📺 RECORDED EVENTS: https://www.redrisks.com/recorded-events/ 👤 ABOUT THE STREAM TEAM: https://www.redrisks.com/redrisks-stream-team/ 🧲 CONNECT WITH ME: LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/sonnigopal/ #redrisks #redriskslive #streamteam

Stream Team Introduction and Future Content [#013]
Way back in August 2019, I set up a Group on LinkedIn called “Risk and Safety Professionals (RASP) Forum”. The write up for the group included the following: Sharing quality content; Having constructive and      insightful discussions; and Learn from each other. The above is as relevant today as it was back then. This is why the SG Live Show has the 3 core pillars “Connect-Share-Learn”. In this Live Event: Let’s introduce the Stream Team; Talk about RASP; and Discuss what you think we should include (or exclude) for future shows via Live Chat.

Safety Today and Beyond - Interview with Dr Dominic Cooper [#012]
I still recall my interview with Dom (back in July 2019) when we discussed "UK's Safety Performance Has Flatlined - But Why?" We are now another year forward, with a Global pandemic to boot and a completely new landscape when it comes to working in general...Phew! In this Live Event session with Dom, I want to revisit some of the discussions from the July event and pose the following questions: What do we mean by "Safety Today & Beyond"? What challenges do we see (if we had a working crystal ball)? How are we going to deal with choice? Are there any key messages, thoughts and/or lessons we can apply? Join me as we discuss these and other related issues when it comes "Safety Today and Beyond".
