    Tackling mental health in the workplace

    Comedian Ruby Wax will join health and safety professionals at a 3M Safety Network Live event in Bracknell, Berkshire, on 5 October.

    • US born comedian, actor and writer Ruby Wax will be speaking about how stress at work can have an impact on mental health as part of this wide-reaching free seminar covering topics ranging from the Science of Safety to creating a safety-first culture.

      Ruby has been honoured with the title of poster girl for mental illness and says that she was once crazy and is now less so. She will give a tour of the mind – how to use it, not lose it; and will share strategies for maintaining healthy minds in the workplace.

      Ruby graduated from Oxford with a Masters in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy three years ago and has released a number of books on the subject, including her most recent work A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled. She will be signing copies at the event.

      Other highlights will include a presentation on how to win over your audience, led by communication specialist from Body Talk Marcus Webb, and an interactive workshop exploring effective strategies for creating a safety-first culture.

      In addition, Rob Brill, technical manager for 3M’s Personal Safety Division, will host a session explaining how his team’s approach to the Science of Safety - covering selection, training and fit of personal protective equipment - can help improve compliance.

      There will also be a display of 3M’s fall protection and confined space access solutions and a demonstration showing how 3M’s advanced abrasive tools can help reduce hand-arm vibration.

      Said 3M senior marketing executive for Personal Safety, Steve Crouchley: “We have a packed agenda for the day and are looking forward to welcoming health and safety professionals to this free event and exploring ways that we can work together to improve safety at work.”
