Bjørn Jepsen - WeFocus

In this episode Bjørn is guested by Kazimierz Kempa, Environment Health Safety Lead and HSE Mental Focus Specialist.
 
The episode covers Kazimierz’s passion for helping people and HSE, how he went from being a graduate from University of Technology to go into the field being brand new in the HSE community, and how he enjoys to always challenge himself to make sure he's developing!
 
 Kazimierz also shares his perspective on how the all-time issue is Top Management and how important it is to make them understand HSE, as HSE professionals aren't able to do their job if the Top Management do not care. The two criteria for success in HSE are Top Management and the behaviour of the people that are causing the problems, but without engagement from above it's difficult to do anything. So, how do we change the mindset of the Top Management?
 
 Kazimierz also believes that the HSE community is changing at the moment. We not only focus and documenting problems but more and more focus on the root causes and on changing the behaviour of our employees to avoid future accidents! But how do we ensure this development?
 
 Listen to this episode to learn about new perspectives on the debate of top management, learn from Kazimierz's great experience and skills, and deepen your insight on the current development within the HSE community!
