AEE Conference: Integrating Safety I & Safety II Frameworks with Systems Thinking for Risk Management & Harm Mitigation

Integrating Safety I & Safety II Frameworks with Systems Thinking for Risk Management & Harm Mitigation These are the materials from my presentation at the 49th Association for Experiential Education (AEE) conference.  Effective risk management requires understanding what went wrong when an incident occurs (the Safety I framework) and what is going right when there are no incidents (the Safety II framework). Research in Safety Science has moved to utilizing both approaches to create optimal operation of any program. Along with these frameworks we’ll focus on Rasmussen’s System Thinking approach that analyzes both Safety I and Safety II through the lens of Contributing Factor and Mitigating Factor causal taxonomies.

Higher Education Protection Network (HEPNet) Conference Presentation

Preventing Abuse in Youth Programming: Incident Reporting & Data Analytics Tools This is the IncidentAnalytix presentation from the 2021 Higher Education Protection Network (HEPNet) Conference. Managing risk in youth programming means understanding the factors that either lead to incident events or to safe programming. Your best defense against risk is data collection and analysis of incidents and close calls to be able to quickly identify and mitigate hazards. In this workshop we’ll start by exploring the traditional Safety I approach to risk management which focuses on what went wrong and takes a ‘control mistakes’ approach to identify weaknesses or failures in the system. Safety I is often used

Visualizing Incident Data through AcciMaps & PreventiMaps

Visualizing Incident Data through AcciMaps & PreventiMaps The Systems Thinking approach to incident analysis  developed by Jens Rasmussen starts with identifying the factors that impacted the incident event. In the Safety I approach these are the factors which contributed to the adverse outcome. In the Safety II approach these are the factors that acted to prevent an adverse outcome.  IncidentAnalytix allows you to track both Contributing Factors and the Mitigating Factors based on a Taxonomy of causation types. You can also identify relationships where one factor impacted another. Rasmussen’s Systems Thinking approach builds these factors and relationships into a visual map of your incident allowing you to better understand the

Association for Experiential Education 2020 Conference Materials

Risk Assessment & Safety Management: Integrating Safety I & Safety II for Accident Prevention The Risk Assessment & Safety Management System (RASM) used by programs around the world and provides a comprehensive approach for identifying the causes of accidents, assessing changing risk levels, and managing risk combing traditional Safety I methodologies (Avoiding That Things Go Wrong) with newer Safety II methodologies (Ensuring That Things Go Right). Learn how to analyze incident data to build graphical accident causation models (AcciMaps) and accident prevention models (PreventiMaps). Participants will apply these principles through case studies and small group collaboration. Diversity & inclusion, sexual harassment & assault and other safe space issues
