Webinar | The Future of Safety & Risk Management

Many long-standing philosophies about safety take the view that humans like computers whose behaviour is the sum of inputs and outputs. In contrast, social psychology is the scientific study of managing risk and safety through the lens of social dynamics. In other words, understanding how people’s thoughts, decisions and behaviours can be influenced by others.
 
Knowing how the brain processes conversations, sorts information, and facilitates decision making provides a different approach to risk and safety communication. In this presentation, we will identify four hurdles to safety and risk and learn how to use the science of social psychology to overcome them.
