Fatality Blind Spots: How To Identify Human And Organizational Performance Issues And Minimize The Risk Of Serious Injuries And Deaths

Webinar: ID# 1026294
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
True or false: If you reduce the risk of the most common injuries, you also reduce the risk of all injury types, including serious injuries and fatalities. Additionally, if you reduce your total recordable incident rate (TRIR), you’re also reducing your risk of a serious injury or fatality.

If you answered “true,” to one or both of these questions, you likely have a fatality risk blind spot.

The risk factors for serious injuries and fatalities are different from the risk factors for more common, less severe injuries, yet many companies are operating under the incorrect assumption that a single risk assessment process will successfully target both. Even if you’ve reduced your incident rate to near zero, if you’re not actively identifying and managing the fatality risks in your organization, you may have a blind spot that’s a tragedy waiting to happen. To prevent these rare but serious incidents, organizations need to learn approaches for managing their unique risks differently.

Join us for an in-depth webinar when David Eherts, Ph.D, CIH, Vice President of Global EHS at Allergan, will reveal best practices for uncovering and addressing fatality risk blind spots.

You’ll learn:
  • How to define “safety” and “good observations,” which correlate to injury rates
  • Whether getting to “zero” is the right target
  • How the Heinrich Pyramid works and how incident rates factor into fatality risks
  • What safety managers can do to tackle “The Iceberg of Ignorance” that can contribute to fatality risks in the workplace
  • The role of human and organizational performance (HOP) in building error-tolerant defenses—and 6 key principles of HOP every safety manager needs to know
  • The differences among fragile, stable, and resilient safety systems
  • How HOP theory has influenced EHS at Allergan—and how to put the same techniques into practice at your company to lower the risk of fatal injuries in the workplace
  • The role of safety walk-throughs, rules, pre-/post-shift meetings, EHS communication and alerts, and risk maps
