At any given moment we only see as little as 10 percent of what we think we’re seeing; up to 90 percent is filled in by our brain. This innate mechanism for coping with visual stimuli can lead to missing or underestimating hazards, as well as leading to errors that are caused by bias, assumptions (pre-cognitive commitment), and miscommunication. We need a clear picture of our hazard inventory and risk profile so appropriate preventive and protective measures are developed and implemented before harmful, possibly serious events occur. We need to strengthen our Visual Literacy to secure quality risk management.
Join us for a complimentary webinar on January 21, 2020 at 1PM CT, as we share how Visual Literacy can help in identifying hazards that allows us to then assess their risk potential and bring clarity to what might harm our workers as well as damage property.
In this ongoing series we share how Visual Literacy and Advanced Error Reduction can help fill the gaps in our ability to think critically, simplify complexity, and improve our communication. Applying tools and techniques originating in art education and in human and organizational performance extends our capabilities beyond technical knowledge and makes us a better EHS professional.
Did you know that individuals with different personality tendencies see and manage risk differently? That sounds obvious but being aware of and managing our personality tendencies and how they impact our view of risk is the next logical step in preventing, reducing, and mitigating errors and incidents. Visual Literacy helps us each manage how we can better identify and manage risks that may not be obvious based on how our personality type and our tendencies usually see them. Join us for this discussion of the next generation of HOP and Safety.
As we continue to operate in a world that is impacted by COVID-19, we run the risk that our brains have not shifted to what we now need to see. What may be viewed as compliance issues with continually changing COVID-19 related rules may not be intentional but rather human error as we struggle to see the new realities of our work and home environments. This webinar looks at the role of visual literacy and human performance in addressing Coronavirus risk in the workplace and at home.
In this webinar we discuss being more effective in seeing hazards in the workplace and sharing four critical support mechanisms for interpreting and acting on the hazards we find. Learn more about how to take an inventory of the hazards you discover, how to focus on containing hazards until they are properly controlled or eliminated, and finally critical communication and measurement techniques.
