Focus on critical risks: The Laing O’Rourke story

In this presentation Laing O’Rourke executive Tim Fleming explains why his company now focuses on controlling critical risks, and why it is empowering workers to lead health and safety risk management.

Tim tells the story of the day he found himself in a bizarre conversation about whether workers should be banned from walking backwards. The conversation was a ‘light-bulb’ moment for Laing O’Rourke. It led to the company making a bold decision to drop its goal of trying to prevent all injuries, and to instead focus on managing its critical risks.
The video summarises Tim’s presentation at the Forum’s October 2017 Summit. It is designed as a workshop resource CEOs and senior executives can use to support conversations with directors and leadership teams.
