Understanding Risk from a Human Element Perspective

28 September 2021 at 08:30 – 12:00 UTC
£200.00 (£180.00 for NI members)*
Zoom online training platform
There is an element of risk in all we do. So, we need to educate seafarers to think about risk, to UNDERSTAND risk – and this skill can be taught.
 
This one-day module will examine the cognitive psychology model, where the focus is on the ‘cognition’ (understanding) of risk in the workplace, and the accompanying psychological processes required for full understanding. The human perception of risk is a complex process and how the human mind processes that information, is essential in understanding why workers often take risks that would seem strange in hindsight.
 
This workshop will focus on:
– Introduction to the Ramsey Model – in particular: perception and cognition of risk
– Perception
– Cognition
– Decision-making and ability
– Human performance and information processing
– Practical case studies

Risk and Risk Taking Behaviour
29 September 2021 at 08:30 – 12:00 UTC
£200.00 (£180.00 for NI members)*
Zoom online training platform
To reduce unnecessary accidents, a risk-based approach to safety on board is now actively promoted. But so often we attempt to manage risk from a purely technical safety perspective, without understanding the influence of the human element in this process.  This one-day module examines both the theory of risk, as well as the cognitive and behavioural processes behind risk-taking behaviour. It focuses on developing the understanding needed to identify and manage the interface between humans and risk, and uses practical case studies to illustrate these points.

To do this we will examine the following:
Understanding risk theory
Risk-taking behaviour
The role of culture, motivation, perception, decision-making and attitudes
Error and ‘rogue behaviour’Incentive programs and risk-taking behaviour.
