  • Sheraton Tarrytown 600 White Plains Road Tarrytown, NY 10591 United States (914) 332-7900 (map)

SUMMARY: This inaugural SafePassage Learning Lab is about finding the right questions to address risk management in a new way. The Learning Lab is sponsored by SafePassage and hosted in partnership with the Lund University Human Factors and System Safety program.

SCOPE: We will consider individuals, teams, situations and system design & flexibility for a better understanding of ways to learn within one’s own organization how work is done, and how it might be done better.

GOAL: We need the ability to nimbly shift components of the system to maintain quality and safety while understanding the new risks posed by any change will be unknowable for a time. How can we learn about those new risks before someone is harmed?

  • How would you like your professionals, teams or systems to manage efficiency-thoroughness trade-offs?
  • How would the world look to you if you removed the concept of human error at work?
  • How can we fashion systems that optimize performance of all components – including the people involved – while maintaining well-being?

METHODOLOGY:  This Learning Lab will focus on these questions from the perspective of various systems, including healthcare, aviation, information technology, engineering and others. We will consider how organizations learn from within, and how formal research is conducted to better understand complex individual-team-system interactions.
