Safety Institute of Australia - B/fast Series - "When is there too Much Safety" - 25 Jul 08 

Safety Institute of Australia Breakfast Series - 25 July 2008

"When is there too much Safety"
Presenter: Jim Truscott

7.30 - 9.30am - Matilda Bay Restaurant

SIAWA Breakfast Series

Jim Truscott will make a provocative and interrogative presentation on the boundaries of acceptable risk. He will use personal experiences from mortal combat in East Timor and Rhodesia, high-altitude mountaineering in the Himalayas, inter-archipelagic sea kayaking and other fields of endeavour to both entertain and strike at the heart of societal norms of behaviour. He will challenge people eating bacon and eggs to reflect upon the workplace and how humans behave in unsafe situations where time is short, consequences of failure are significant, and fatigue is likely. He will seek those drinking orange juice to determine just how low ALARP should be, and what should be done in the absence of AHARA. He will ask hard and dumb questions as to how much mitigation is enough and whether more risk should be taken. An underlying tenant in the presentation will be the importance of having a leader who understands how people’s values and beliefs influence how they behave, how people make decisions, how people develop and work in teams, how people communicate, and how people think about leadership.
