Emma Blackburn

You know how businesses struggle to understand and implement their safety compliance requirements? Well, I help with that. I have been lucky enough in my life to have worked in a wide range of environments, from chambermaiding and laundry in a French hotel, to overseeing safe multi-national, multi-type aircraft operations at sea as a Royal Navy Air Engineer Officer. I have had the opportunity to generate safety and risk management plans, ranging from traveling round the UK in a transit van doing presentations, to putting new weapons onto aircraft, conducted investigations large and small, and worked with multi-nationals around the world and 1-man bands down the street to assure safety and quality. I have a passion for making the world a safer place and creating cultures that are supporting and engaged. I love to share this passion through talking about risk and safety, safety culture and management and my vision is one where EVERYONE goes home safe, EVERY day.
