About The Event
One of the fundamental principles of HOP is: context drives behavior. Incident investigations show us how organizational and psychological factors can encourage behaviors we don't want, but what is the right context for safety? This session will address practical ways safety leaders can create and sustain a context for operational learning, adaptation, and improvement.
