Situational Awareness Matters!
It’s our company name and it’s the founding principle of our teaching and consulting.
Flawed situational awareness (and the barriers that flaw awareness) are consistently identified as contributing factors in workplace near-miss and casualty investigation reports.
And yet, most workers have received little (or no) training on how to develop and maintain situational awareness.
That might be funny if it weren’t so tragic.
We are on a mission to change that by helping workers REALLY understand what situational awareness is (Hint: It’s a lot more than “Keep your head on a swivel” and “Pay attention”).
Our programs share tips and immediately actionable best practices for how to develop situational awareness and how to maintain it while working in high-stress, high-consequence, time-compressed environments.
We also help companies identify opportunities for improving high-risk decision making outcomes and show them how to implement strategies to improve critical thinking and resilient problem solving skills.
As a result of our work, operations managers, safety managers and supervisors often share with us workers are better equipped to develop and maintain situational awareness and they make better decisions during periods of high vulnerability.
That is the greatest compliment we could hope for.
Let us know how we can help your organization improve safety.
