Unmasking Injury Prevention’s Fatal Flaw
The good news: We’ve seen continuous progress in overall injury reduction over the past few decades. The bad news: The latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals stagnation in the decline of fatalities.
Organizational measures to mitigate injuries have not yielded similar results in preventing fatal incidents. That’s because the factors contributing to potentially life-threatening events differ significantly from those causing less severe incidents.
This webinar explores those differences, connecting the concepts of preventing Serious Injury and Fatality (SIF) incidents with human performance. We’ll look at the underlying motivations behind people's actions and the most prevalent factors contributing to SIFs.
- Why SIFs continue to happen in the most vigilant companies
- What makes SIFs different from less serious injuries
- Where decision-making goes wrong
- The hidden connections between human performance and SIFs
