Transmit Safety Podcast Episode 3 Cover

In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, Aimee brings up an ongoing conversation that’s essential for the continuous improvement of workplace Health & Safety.

There are many ways that Health & Safety practitioners are required to collect, sort, and analyze data related to workplace Health & Safety. If you are like me and not the best of friends with maths, this might not be as easy. But I am here to explain why and remind you that how we do this MATTERS.

Join me in this vital conversation that is shaping the Health & Safety profession right now.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • [00:30] The difference between Health & Safety practitioners and statisticians
  • [02:09] More about the H&S Industry Standards in North America
  • [02:58] To uncover and challenge some H&S-related acronyms
  • [06:00] Understand the idea behind the ever-present “Smoke Shack Stat”
  • [13:11] My take on how we, as H&S practitioners, should approach this conversation

The Transmit Safety Podcast is here to help health and safety practitioners achieve a holistic approach to workplace health and safety so they can become impactful leaders and put the value of safety into action.

As promised in the episode, you can find the Construction Safety Research Alliance report titled “The Statistical Invalidity of TRIR as a Measure of Safety Performance” that I mentioned HERE.

Quotes from this episode

“… I do defer to these industry standards on what types of Health and Safety statistics should health and safety practitioners be collecting. But these are just numbers. It is how these numbers are being used and interpreted, that can cause issues or success when discussing workplace health and safety.”

“… each number on your injury statistics spreadsheet is a person. Each number on that injury statistics spreadsheet has a ripple effect into your workplace, into families, into communities. So how we collect, sort, analyze, and communicate Workplace Health & Safety data matters.

Quotes from this episode

“As businesses, we need to profit in order to continue to have the impact that we want to have. But, there’s more to the story, and I think people leading with that or brands leading with that are where the change is really going to happen.” – Sarah Williams

I think it’s very easy for companies to forget that it’s the people in your company who are making you money, and who are showing up every day, and helping you create the impact that you want to have.– Sarah Williams

“…if you are in business for the long haul, if you are here to build something sustainable that is going to scale, at the end of the day, business comes down to reputation.” – Sarah Williams

“And know that you don’t have to make large, sweeping, systemic changes. You can make small, little, incremental changes to a process or a system as you put in the work and understand ‘what’s not serving me?’, ‘what’s not serving the workers?’, ‘what’s not serving the business in the long run?’ as well. So don’t make work for yourself unless you’re not as busy as you want to be.” – Aimee Arsenault

Quotes from this episode

“I’m Aimee, CRSP, CHSC, and I’m here to help you simplify and streamline health and safety management systems.”

“Many of us are starting our career alone in companies without that internal support system, lacking a mentor who can help guide us along the way, or at least help figure out how you managed to step in the shit this time around.”

“Healthy and safe workplaces should not be complicated.”

We're here to have authentic conversations about what it's really like to be an HSE practitioner - the good, the bad, and all the situations in between.

we get really really real.

Pour a cuppa because we're about having transparent conversations.

it's like chatting with a Friend.

It's a different mindset approach for practitioners seeking to plug into a network of SME's.

not your average HSE podcast

What you'll find on the podcast:

Sure, I could start by telling you my work history, my educational background, but really (I think) the most important part of listening to a podcast is getting to know the host, finding out what's important to them, and hearing if the vibe is right.

So hi! I'm Aimee — a CRSP and CHSC. And, I'm here to help you simplify and streamline health & safety management systems.

I drink on average four cups of coffee a day; spend way too much time on social media, and enjoy spending time with my dog Reggie. 

Most importantly, I love to have conversations about workplace health & safety. So join me in transmitting health and safety on all frequencies.
