Todd Conklin
US Human Performance Expert

Dr Todd Conklin

In this presentation Dr Todd Conklin challenges traditional ideas about how safety performance should be measured and says we need a new definition of safety.

Use this powerpoint to support a discussion with your teams.

Dr Conklin argues that, because humans are fallible, accidents are inevitable. So, organisations are never going to succeed in stopping all accidents.

That means attention must be paid to protecting people when the inevitable accidents occur. This requires leaders to focus on building organisations that can ‘fail safely’.
