The Safe Patient Handling and Mobility Conference that was held from April 20 – 24th was a great success. With an increase in attendance from last year and the addition of the Falls track, everyone commented that there was renewed energy and an excitement in the air. The ASPHP was one of the conference Sponsors.
The ASPHP participated in a large way this year, offering a Novice track within the Pre and Post conference settings. Our combined presentations were very well-received and we were pleased to offer those who attended a workbook that they could take with them back to their offices for practical use. Eleven of our Board members and/or CSPHPs instructed one or more presentations.
The ASPHP Annual meeting was also held on the evening of April 21st. The opening reception was great fun as many interested visitors joined us for conversation, light food and drink. Later, forty-four members assembled to hear the Annual report, meet the new Board members and thank the outgoing Board members for their contribution to our organization. It is always gratifying to meet together in a relaxed environment to share our SPHM stories, renew old acquaintances and make new friends.
We were also excited to have our own Colin Brigham receive the 2015 Advocacy Award at this year’s conference. Colin’s list of accomplishments re: SPHM is very impressive – he has been working on promoting the science and practice since the early 90’s. He is on top of all legislative activity throughout the country and will, for the second time, provide testimony on Capitol Hill in May. We are so privileged to have Colin on our Board. He is a trusted colleague and friend. Congratulations Colin!!
Culture vs. Climate: What you need to know to make your SPHM program successful
October 14, 2015 2PM Eastern
Presented by: Richard Schleckser, MS, ARM, NEBOSH, CSPHP, CMIOSH
This session will define the important differences between a safety culture and climate. The culture of an organization has often been discussed as a potential barrier to SPHM program implementation. However, there is an opportunity to better define strategies to truly address these barriers and measure the climate within an organization to ensure it is capable of supporting SPHM initiatives. We will discuss what a safety climate is and review a validated tool to measure this within your organization. Results of the climate assessment can be used to better refine and direct tactics to improve the safety culture over time.
