Human perceptions of risk are notoriously inaccurate. For instance, we all know that our chances of dying in an airplane crash are far lower than our chances of dying in a car crash – yet, many of us fear the plane ride to a much greater extent. As safety professionals can attest, this is equally true in the workplace. Employees are willing to take many “chances” that expose them to unacceptable risk. But our organizations, management, and even safety professionals are also prone to misjudge risks, particularly after they become more familiar with the task or industry. This presentation will describe a strategy to more accurately and objectively assess and prioritize risks in the workplace, allowing you to better optimize your resources to address those risks.
This session by our expert speaker Brent Altemose, offers a strategy to objectively assess and prioritize risks in the workplace. The strategy utilizes a unique but straightforward risk matrix that incorporates cost/benefit concepts.
The speaker will answer your questions at the end of session to help you with the doubts and queries you may have.
