In this episode, we’re going to hear from Sukhy Hogwood who looks at safety in design and safety’s role in ensuring buildings are not only safe to construct, but also usable for those who will be living, working in, and recreationally using the space. Then, Paul Richardson discusses how digitalised safety processes can transform a workplace.

Sukhy Hogwood is HSE Director at Jacobs, which delivers global solutions to create a more connected and sustainable world — from intelligence to infrastructure, cybersecurity to space exploration.

In this this interview, which was recorded ahead of Sukhy’s seminar session at Safety & Health Expo in May, Sukhy speaks about how we can re-invigorate the approach to safety in design, how safety can capture the hearts and minds of engineers and designers and why the most inclusive work environments are the safest work environments.

In the second part of the show, Paul Richardson, Founder & Managing Director of Connected Safety Net, talks about how the digitalisation of safety processes truly deliver results and making the world a safer place.

Paul touches on why safety tech inspires him and how he visualises how safety with use technology in the future.
