How our cognitive biases affect workplace safety decisions
ORC HSE webinar on cognitive bias on October 25, 2018
Our brains are powerful information processing systems, but they are not an unlimited resource. Our brains evolved to look for efficiency. This efficiency often happens without us even realizing it. These biases arise because of how our brain handles information and help us get to decisions quickly, but may also place the quality and effectiveness of our decisions at risk. This is especially true if we are not aware of these cognitive biases and take steps to manage how they affect us and our working teams.
This webinar will discuss the most prevalent cognitive biases affecting how we process information and make decisions in the workplace, explain how they work, and review steps that can be taken to protect ourselves and our organizations from them.
A certificate of participation will be given to all participants that may be used to secure certification maintenance points.
