Hear from Gill Kernick, Master Consultant at JMJ Associates, who specialises in safety leadership and culture and has been a high-profile voice on the subject of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Gill was a former resident of the tower, moving out three years before the tragedy in 2017. She chats to SHP Editor Ian Hart and IFSEC Global Editor James Moore about the pressing need to improve building safety culture and prevent low probability, high consequence events – such as Grenfell – from happening again. Gill’s work saw her voted amongst the top 25 Most Influential People in Health & Safety by SHP’s readers, back in December.

Read James’ report from the interview on IFSEC Global.

Then, we’re joined by Heather Beach, Chair of the Women in Health and Safety Network in the UK, to discuss how the pandemic has affected the network, it’s plans for 2021 and how you can get involved. Plus, learn about the new International Women in Safety Coalition.

Finally, Andrew Sharman, Founder and Chairman of One Percent Safer and Malcolm Staves, Corporate Health & Safety Director at L’Oréal, join us to provide an update on the One Percent Safer book, the Foundation and the up-coming conference.

Listen to Andrew’s interview from episode 3.
