Safety Differently: The Movie

Professor Sidney Dekker, Director of the Safety Science Innovation Lab at Griffith University, along with his team have produced a film that cites real-life, Australian examples, of organisations that have questioned the traditional safety hierarchy and bureaucracy.

These organisations recognised that despite more and more bureaucracy and compliance requirements their safety performance had plateaued. From the website “Safety Differently: The Movie tells the stories of three organisations that had the courage to devolve, declutter, and decentralize their safety bureaucracy.” (To read more about the movie click here to visit the website directly.)

The film is worth the 30 minutes of your time – whether or not you have an “official” safety role. It is an introduction to the idea that safety can be done differently, and with great results. Share with your team to start a conversation about safety at your workplace.
