Using Emerging Technology to Cultivate Hazard Recognition Culture

Mar 29, 2023

Sponsored by Grainger


Sponsored by Grainger. Everyone recognizes hazards differently, and some hazards may go completely unrecognized. These factors can lead to misinterpretation of risks and increase the likelihood of serious injuries and fatalities. How should an occupational safety and health professional account for variation in hazard recognition? Join us to gain practical guidance on recognizing hazards and discuss effective uses of emerging technologies such as virtual immersion and gamification to improve your training and enhance your organization’s safety culture.

What You Will Learn

  • Discuss how variation in hazard recognition creates risks.
  • Identify gaps in training and recognize how technology can fill those gaps and enhance training.
  • Review how effective hazard recognition programs are central to effective safety culture.
  • Identify effective socialization strategies for implementing new technology in the workplace.
