WLS: Virtual SafetySummit | April 19-23, 2021

Virtual Safety Summit

April 19-23,  2021

Every organization can achieve zero workplace injuries. The journey begins when safety is more than a goal or objective, but rather an unwavering value. The journey begins with you.

At the Workplace Learning System SafetySummit we will show you how to begin the safety culture journey. More than a safety conference, the SafetySummit is an immersive learning experience in which participants are introduced to our complete WLS Safety System. 


Summit Kick-off – The first day of the Virtual SafetySummit will feature Workplace Learning System executive leadership who will guide you through Workplace Learning System's proven approach to safety culture transformation.  This session will focus on the strategic elements of the approach.

Reflection Point   A facilitated discussion of a carefully chosen short story is designed to invite good questions, active listening, an examination of personal assumptions and a deeper understanding of our colleagues and ourselves.  This is a way to strengthen communication and psychological safety through the use of stories.  

Systems Quadrant – In this strategic discussion, we will focus on the "Systems" Quadrant of the approach.  Most organizations have focused a great deal of time, energy and resources on building and improving safety systems.  This discussion will focus on leveraging the collective community in the organization to build systems for your unique business.


Culture Quadrant – WLS safety coaches will introduce you to our safety culture approach. We will discuss developing support for making Safety a Core Value and anticipating the implications for the organization and/or location as a whole.

Discover Your Safety Culture Challenges – Discover your unique safety challenges and explore how our safety culture approach can help you overcome them to achieve injury freedom.  We'll show you how to do this by developing support for making Safety a Core Value and anticipating the implications for the organization as a whole.   

Site Leadership Panel – An exceptional opportunity to hear from and interact with facility leadership who are transforming their safety culture, using the WLS approach.  This panel will feature leaders at various stages of transformation and will provide unbridled access to their experiences, knowledge and their own personal transformation.


Behavioral Quadrant – The SafetyFirst® Habits of Excellence program takes individual Behavior Based Safety (BBS) to the next level of safety culture development. With over a decade of testing and implementation, SafetyFirst has helped eliminate injuries at many client facilities worldwide. The new revised version - Habits of Excellence - is now building on that foundation.

Care Management /Hot Seat Call – WLS's experiences have demonstrated that most organizations seriously struggle with incident reporting, response, care and correction.  In fact, our data would suggest that organizations only truly fix an incident so that it can't happen again about 30% of the time.  Care Management involves a planned and coordinated response in a consistent and caring manner.  The objective is not to punish and blame injured employees, but to restore them to the workplace at the most appropriate time to benefit both the employee and the operations.  Experience a practice that has led to a dramatic reduction in repeat incidents and correction across organizations in the "Hot Seat Call."

Client Safety Action Teams Panel – During this discussion panel, you will meet front-line employees and have the opportunity to ask them direct questions. They are very excited to highlight the various initiatives they have undertaken to make their workplace safer each and every day.


Intentional Quadrant – Use Safety360 Leadership and Data Analysis for Benchmarking your current safety culture, developing safety leaders throughout your organization and planning for injury freedom.

COVID: Working Remotely – More information coming soon!

Safety360 – This workshop is an opportunity for company safety leaders to explore their team dynamics, communication and performance through the lens of self-actualization, mindfulness and team problem solving. The Safety360 Leadership survey and workshop was designed by Workplace Learning System to give participants confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. This typically includes the participant’s manager, peers and direct reports. It’s not only for EHS professionals, but also for executives, operations managers, support managers and front-line supervisors. Any organizational leader can be a safety leader.


Closeout –   With Habits of Excellence, safe behavior becomes the way we work based on our values we live by. Learn ways to keep engaged with safety and learn how to positively communicate about safety through the SafetyMyVoice .
