Community—Redefining safety

HASANZ conference keynote speaker John Green said safety is in crisis and that for it to move forward it would have to abandon some old ideas. “Our profession is tied to negativity. We swing into action when things go wrong. This troubles me.” Behavioural safety, he said, tries to figure out how to change people through systems of incentives and punishments. “That’s the way many organisations define safety. Pretty depressing.” A proponent of Safety II, he portrayed an alternative way of viewing safety – as the ability to manage change on a daily basis.
