Risk Management and Decision Making: Using “Near Misses” and Incident Analysis to Teach and Create Safety Awareness in Your Organization
Speaker: Captain Deborah Hayes, Director of GERONIMO Program and Senior Captain at St. George’s School
In sailing and sail training programs, there will always be some element of risk. It is partly because of this risk that the programs are extremely effective teaching platforms. Since all hazards can’t be eliminated from sail training, situational awareness and risk management must be a part of every ship’s training program. This session will include a discussion of ways to create safety awareness in your organization by presenting risk management strategies from different industries as well as an interactive workshop examining case histories of near misses and accidents.
