More
We started the Safety Matters Show towards the end of August 2018 and this is really the first chance I have had in looking back at where we are right now and I am amazed at what has been achieved. However, none of this would have been possible without you, the listeners and watchers who regularly tune in and support what we are doing...thank you. As a run-up to the New year, in this episode, I look back over the last 4 months and how we have developed. What we have done and what are the...

SMP #020: What exactly is health and well-being? [Health, Well-being and Fitness]

10/24/2018
More
We often hear the words Health and Well-being. Perhaps, someone might ask you the question "How's your health" but do they ever ask you "how's your well-being"? Probably not.. In this podcast, I start with some standard definitions for health and well-being. I then do a deeper dive by reflecting on my own personal circumstances and job-related experiences. It can be a very difficult subject to disseminate because of the "human dynamic", however, if I reflect, recall and share my own...

In this show, Sukhleen and I discuss how to motivate your fitness aspirations. As a qualified personal trainer, I offer my top tips based upon the SMART approach and how to be realistic with the targets that you set to ensure you don't "burn out" and/or become demotivated. It's just straight-forward "apple pie" stuff and nothing with regard to magic bullets that make you invincible or give you an overnight 6-pack...sorry. It just takes a little bit of hard work and most importantly...

I enjoyed this podcast with Heather where we explored diversity and well-being. We speak candidly about our experiences in the working environment and also how things have evolved, for the better, albeit with some challenges. Somewhat nostalgic for me and very enjoyable. A really open discussion in that we spoke freely about our own experiences regarding bullying, not just in the workplace but also on a personal level.

This was a great interview with Tim during which we discuss safety culture, leadership and behavioural safety. Tim has a really pragmatic approach in these topics and he takes us "safely" through the myriad of challenges allowing us to digest in small pieces. I am sure we will have more to discuss in future podcasts and hopefully, Tim can spare us his time and experiences.

It is important to ensure that fairness is paramount when it comes to equality and diversity. Having a fair approach generates a highly productive working environment. After all, it’s difficult to work effectively when an individual is under stress, duress or feelings of insecurity. In this podcast, I start with defining equality and diversity and discuss how one can set about improving these two important aspects within a work environment.
