Human Factors in Safety Workshop:
Behavioral Science in Safety and Health

Human information processing and decision making can often be described by non‐Bayesian, suboptimal models. This results in subsequent behavior that appears illogical, unreasonable, and even irrational However better understanding of the complex interplay of multiple objectives, efficient heuristic reasoning, and satisficing decision criteria can often explain these observed behaviors and even anticipate them in advance. For safety and health professionals, this expertise is essential to ensure a safe working environment.​

The workshop will take attendees on a tour of the worker's mind, with a focus on the processing of the workplace environment and the achievement of job assignments. Recent findings in cognitive science, behavioral science, and performance management will be applied to the modern workplace. The seminar will cover the reality of human perception, attention, memory, and decision making as these new findings have discovered.​

Facilitator: Professor Marc Resnick
Cost: $350* (​SIM/UniSIM students); $550* (others)
