2018 HSSE Conference and Exhibition
Alan Quilley has made a career of learning and applying the leading edge of occupational health & safety. Combining three decades of hands-on experience, a passion for "doing it right" and a presentation style that entertains and educates, he is a unique voice on the issue of safety excellence.
Alan's quest has seen him touching the work lives of tens of thousands of employees, supervisors and managers in both Canada and the United States. His client list covers a broad spectrum of industry sectors that include oil, gas & petrochemical, police & fire services, transportation, construction and municipalities.
Alan's safety career took flight in 1976, when he became a safety coordinator with CN Rail. Evolving through a series of increasingly senior occupational health and safety positions, he has had the opportunity to develop, test and refine his ideas through hands-on experience. His drive to educate others has seen him actively involved with the University of Alberta and most recently, as a key figure in the development and delivery of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology's brand-new occupational health and safety diploma program.
To complement his work as an educator, he has combined his decades of experience with the best in behavioural and occupational health & safety research to quantify exactly what it takes to make companies safe. The result of his labours is the book "The Emperor Has No Hard Hat: Achieving REAL Workplace Safety Results", which received Honourable Mention among the Globe & Mail's top ten business books of 2006.
This book brings to life his concept of safety, which he calls Integrated Safety Management System, shortened to ISMS (rhymes with "prisms"). As he describes it, ISMS is a set of powerful, yet simple concepts that companies can adapt to their own unique situations. The system also teaches safety personnel how to collect and analyze evidence that will verify that safety excellence has been achieved.
Alan has written subsequent books, “Creating & Maintaining a Practical Based Safety Culture”,“How To Hold Great Safety Meetings – These meetings don’t suck anymore!”, and his most recent work, "MORE Creating & Maintaining a Practical Based Safety Culture - Turning Intention into Action". All of Alan's books are available for purchase in the Safety Book section.
He also continues to write and submit articles for a variety of safety related magazines.
