Title: Safety – II in Practice
Date: October 26, 2021
Time: 1:00 – 3:00 pm PST
Presenter: Ron Gantt
(This webinar will be presented in English)

In the last decade in safety management, a new idea has emerged that has caused a bit of a stir – Safety-II. The idea is relatively simple, defining safety as an ability to make things go well, which has led to many misunderstandings. Is it really all that different from what we are already doing? If it is different, then how do we do it? And does this mean we should stop doing what we are doing? In this presentation we will attempt to answer these questions and more to help clear up some of the confusion. And perhaps along the way we will see how Safety-II can profoundly impact our everyday practice and spark innovative solutions to our toughest problems.
