Course Description:

The identification of safety hazards by workers and supervision, risk taking and their correction is critical to reducing injuries and improving safety performance. Studies by this presenter of injury analyses has showed that half of the causes assigned were lack of hazard awareness. About 36% were personal risk taking and about 15% were poor (or no) procedure and /or facility design. This presentation will describe useable best practices, activities or “tools” that can be used to enhance everyone’s safety awareness and hazard recognition. You will find some to be familiar and others new but our intent is to make them all better for hazard recognition. Most “tools” are suitable to involve employees and in fact may be most valuable if employees at all levels participate. The tools might also be useful to provide measurable safety activities for supervisors and line managers.


Examples of a few of our “tools” you will learn about and how to apply them for better hazard recognition are Incident Analysis; Incentive Hazard Reporting; Virtual Incident Analysis and Management of Change.

Course Objective:

The course objective is straight forward - to provide you with new ideas to improve safety with new safety activities or a twist on a safety activity already in use"." If you are a manager and want useful, measureable safety activities for your supervisors or teams this webinar will help.
