Occupational Health and Safety Presentation
"Safety lessons from the top of the world"
The last 900 vertical metres on Mt Everest are without doubt one of the riskiest places on the planet. How does a mountaineer get home alive and in one piece?
Climbing above 8000 metres on Everest has become known as the "Death Zone" for a very good reason. The higher one goes on Everest the greater the chance of a climber not coming home. The death and injury rate on Mt Everest is high, so how do good expeditions minimise the risk?
Most people perceive that climbing Everest and Safety are diametrically opposed. The truth is very different from this perception. We at Outdoor Insights are in a unique position, with both our directors having successfully stood on the summit of Mount Everest- Bob Killip in 2006 and Zac Zaharias in 2010.
Our highly acclaimed keynote presentations are inspiring as they are informative. They examine how mountaineers minimise risk by focusing on safety systems, safety culture, teamwork, communication and leadership.
The presentations look at the interplay between these elements that enable climbers to summit and then return safely. Both Bob and Zac's insights are extraordinary and the use of stunning photos and video footage throughout the presentations keeps the audience engaged and inspired. The lessons learned and strategies used are easily related to the workplace. The presentations have an easy style and there are usually far more questions generated from the audience than time allows to answer!
"As a company specialising in behavioural safety, we needed a key note speaker for our 2011 conference that could tell a good yarn, yet at the same time leave us with lessons relevant to our business and industry. We selected Bob Killip from Outdoor Insights. It was wonderful to hear of Bob's personal Everest journey and the relevant links he makes to safety in the workplace. The pictures were visually engaging. The story captivating...The lessons, memorable. Thanks Bob, the team are still talking about it - 6 months on!"
