Webinar Description:

The emerging systems based approach to risk management planning has altered the way we conceive, organize, and implement risk systems. This workshop provides an internal systems perspective to looking beyond operator error and understanding the latent and organizational causes of accidents. In effect, we examine how our organizations can sometimes set up our staff to fail. The analysis framework in this webinar hinges upon event analysis (both positive or negative) to create structures that reduce variability in delivery and improve safety.
