The aim of the workshop is to share experiences from how Safety-II has been used by various industries and in various practices. The workshop will give the participants an opportunity to present and discuss the lessons learned – good as well as bad, practical as well as methodological. The workshop will be a unique opportunity for safety professionals and researchers to interact with like-minded colleagues, to debate the strengths and weaknesses of Safety-II, and to share ideas for further developments.

The workshop is open to everyone regardless of their level of experience with Safety-II (For newcomers it may be a good idea to attend the Safety II Fundamentals Workshop on Monday 24th Feb). It will address the use of Safety-II in a variety of fields and for purposes ranging from investigations, performance analyses, organisational management and development, individual and organisational learning, and resilience. The workshop will provide a unique opportunity to

  • Discuss and exchange experiences on how a Safety-II perspective can be used to analyse and manage complex socio-technical systems.
  • Receive feedback on and support for your own Safety-II projects.
  • Learn about the latest developments and application areas of Safety-II.
  • Develop a perspective on the long-term potential of Safety-II.
