Join us on Friday 19 February for a webinar session titled: Risk Competency to Improve Safety
How do humans make judgements about risk? How do we ensure risk assessment tools and processes genuinely engage people with risk? How do we hit the ‘sweet spot’ where people can make decisions about their work, fail, and learn, yet avoid incident and injury?
This webinar will give an introduction to the theory and evidence behind human expertise development, the strength of intuitive decisions, and what we can do practically to leverage this for better safety outcomes. Moving beyond the ‘mechanics’ of our decisions, we will touch on:

Tim Lawler, Senior Consultant, epigroup
In the years he spent working on drilling rigs across Australia and offshore, Tim never felt comfortable with the pessimistic view of human capability in high-risk environments – where behaviour-based safety programs largely laid the blame for error at the feet of people, and ‘engineering the idiot out’ of decisions was the philosophy of many leaders in safety-critical industries.
After suffering a few injuries offshore, Tim ended his time in the drilling sector and returned to complete degrees in psychology and philosophy. Gaining greater knowledge of industrial psychology, human factors and human performance, he developed a passion to deliver practical, evidence-based solutions in high-risk industries that sees human expertise as the key to unlocking safe operational performance.
Since leaving operational roles, Tim has been working as a facilitator and consultant, and has been with Epigroup for nearly three years where he enjoys engaging both white and blue collar workers, and coaching them to seek continuous improvement by challenging the status quo
