''Choose to adhere to the prevention culture''
Marie Laberge
"Create a favorable context to the well-being of people and the organization’s performance with " nudges"!

Whether it's to support your workplace health and safety values or other areas such as environment, quality or productivity, people's commitment to Corporate Culture can be a major barrier to the overall performance of your organization.

This "theatrical" conference is intended to be playful and concrete with regard to the concepts of membership and commitment. It demonstrates that humans act more often under the influence of emotions than rationalism in a process of organizational transformation. More than simply questioning the traditional management model, it tells you how to allow people to freely choose to adhere to the values of the organization.

Marie Laberge has been passionate about the field of health, safety and the environment for nearly 25 years. Thousands of hours as a trainer and communicator in more than 650 organizations helped shape her unique and powerful approach. Her public lectures have been delivered to recognized organizations in the field, including the Quebec Employers' Health and Safety Center, the Quebec Association for Occupational Health and Safety (AQHSST), Business Events, Prévibois and CNESST.

''HPI « Human Performance Improvement »''
Eric Ashby, Domtar Windsor
No matter the industry, if your business involves human beings at any stage of the process, you need to know how to manage human error

Focusing specifically on Human Performance Improvement (HPI) in relationship to organizational processes and Safety Cultures; this presentation addresses the need to specialize in predicting and reducing error rates and more importantly reducing the consequences of human error at critical steps. While most improvement processes focus on worker behaviors only, this approach provide tools to detect what was previously thought of as undetected organizational weaknesses. Organizational weaknesses can have a large amount of influence on individual performance. The latest studies in this area have reported that 70% of the influence to an individual’s error rate is from organizational processes (such as procedures, work conditions, tools, supervisory methods, etc).
