Change the way you think about accident investigations and safety management

and create a culture of learning and growth

Every accident, every failure is an opportunity for learning and improvement – but every time you face the same problem:

  • Your people become defensive
  • Your people perceive that you have a blame culture
  • Your people stop reporting defects and incidents
  • Your investigation and auditing tools prove ineffective
  • You enrol for a training course but it’s difficult to operationalise
  • You end up with more bureaucracy and paperwork

Accidents are a blow to reputation and finances.
Can you leave your success to chance?

Breaking down the separation between ethos and ethics of risk

Oct 28, 2021 08:30 AM (UK time)

Your ethos (worldview-methodology) directs your ethic (moral system) and all methods in risk and safety evidence an underlying worldview (ethos). Such matters are rarely discussed in the safety industry. Indeed, the associations in safety never discuss their own ethic, even when they discuss ethics (eg. AIHS BoK Chapter on Ethics). This lack of transparency is unethical and fosters confusion in an industry that seeks to claim the word ‘professional’. Some critical questions need consideration:

• Can you articulate your ethos and what is your ethic of risk?
• How do you define personhood and how does this translate to your practice/power in safety?
• What is your methodology (worldview) that drives your method?

If all you are doing is filling out the checklists that someone else has designed, you are practising the ethos of the designer, not your own. It is about time that ethics was taken seriously for the practice of safety. Methods that dehumanize persons should have no place in safety.

Learning Outcomes:
This seminar will help participants better understand the centrality of ethics for professionalism and where to get started in developing a professional ethic of risk.
