TransformationalSafety.Com is the culmination of decades of service provided by David G Broadbent. David graduated from the University of Newcastle (NSW, Australia) in 1987 after having completed an Honours Degree in Psychology. During his undergraduate years he conducted innovative research within the area of attitudes toward paraplegics with special emphasis upon the "strength" of avoidance behaviour and how this might be manipulated. David's research presented a new paradigm which strongly questioned contemporary theories of avoidance and placed greater emphasis upon eye-contact variables. David was concurrently employed, on a casual basis, with management consulting firm John P Young and Associates, providing psychometric assessment services. He was also the youngest accredited crisis intervention counsellor with the Lifeline organisation in Australia; staffing "the phones" from age nineteen.
Upon leaving University David accepted an offer of employment from the Commonwealth Rehabilitation Service; now known as CRS Australia. It became apparent that the geographical area was deficient in quality pain management services and David was instrumental in developing and coordinating a Pain Management Workshop which was very well supported over the years. David has presented papers at the First National Rehabilitation Conference (1991) and the Tenth National Behavioural Medicine Conference (1993); concerned with the psychological reactions to pain and relevance to treatment protocols.
In 1991 David was invited to become a Member of the International Association for the Study of Pain; whilst also being a Member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), and a registered Psychologist in the State of N.S.W. He is also a Member of the Green Cross Foundation (an international network of trauma workers) and the Positive Employee Relations Council. In 1996 David was elected to Associate Fellowship of the Australian Institute of Management. David is also a member of the internationally acclaimed Mediation Training Institute, the International Critical Incident Stress Association, and the Critical Incident Stress Management Foundation of Australia.
David also has an interest in people who have experienced a wide range of stress difficulties; ranging from occupational based stress to Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. He presented some of his ideas to the First National Occupational Stress Conference (1994) and was an invited speaker at the Third National Employee Assistance Professionals Association of Australia Conference (1994). David was also an invited speaker at Huntersafe and Futuresafe 2001; the lead Occupational Health & Safety Conference (at the time) in the Asia Pacific Region. David is particularly sought out for his ability to pragmatically provide education on the impact of traumatic incidents in the workplace and the value of dealing with them from an OH&S perspective. He has also been involved in the training of Psychologists in various parts of Australia; specifically looking at the area of Occupational Stress Assessment and Rehabilitation protocols.
For a number of years David has considered the constructs surrounding workplace safety from the perspective of the leadership functions which occur in and around the safety environment. It was out of that thinking that David has embraced the Full Range Leadership Model as the model of choice for assisting organisations focus and develop their internal safety cultures. David is also the inventor of the Integrated Safety Culture Assessment Model; which incorporates aspects of traditional safety auditing (ISO 18000 and/or AS/NZS 4801), quantitative assessment (safety survey metrics), qualitative assessment (targeted focus groups). The Integrated Safety Culture Assessment Model then draws all of the data together and presents it in a form that takes advantage of one of the leading safety cultural frameworks available today.
More recently David was asked to present his thinking about safety and leadership at the 28th International Congress of Psychology which was held in Beijing, CHINA during 2004 (the Olympic Games of Psychology). This presentation, amongst the foremost collection of Psychologists from throughout the global community, cemented David's position as an internationally recognised voice on the associations between safety outcomes and leadership. As a result of the powerful support and encouragement David has received from his global colleagues he has developed the Transformational Safety Improvement System. Indeed David is the first in the World to coin the phrase "transformational safety" as a descriptor for the powerful relationships between transformational leadership theory and its associated safety correlates.
Thirty two years since Bhopal, thirty years since Chernobyl, twenty eight since Piper Alpha and what have we learned?
Not much. After all, we have seen Texas City, Macondo, the Soma mine collapse, the Lac-Mégantic rail disaster, and the list just goes on - all in the last ten years or so. Clearly what we have been doing has not been working.
The time has come to take some real responsibility, and put some science back into safety. The time has come to transform your safety culture. The cost of not doing anything shall be further death and injury.
