On a most practical level, the “culture” of an organization relates to two major questions: 1) is there an environment being created in which human beings can thrive? and 2) is there a strategic vision for the future of the organization? These questions must be answered with a priority placed on safety. If a work environment is not safe, it is difficult to legitimately talk about a “human” culture, or to give credibility to other strategic goals. Approximately 70 percent of the time, safety is the direct result of human decisions, choices, and judgments. This “human side” of safety (beyond technology breakdowns and process errors) can be systematically and effectively addressed.
This session will explore how a unique assessment tool, The Judgment Index, takes the modern concept of data-based analytics and translates it to an additional way to assess and improve safety issues.
