Decision Analysis in Support of Safety Management Systems

October 8, 2014 at 9am Pacific / 11am Central / Noon Eastern

Meeting Description       Details

As a safety professional, your world is all about choices. In order to keep your safety management system humming, you need to make them all the time. Some big, some small and some that could potentially cost your organization millions if the choice is a wrong one.

So how do you make that choice?

Easy. By employing decision analysis.

With decision analysis, techniques are used to figure out optimal strategies when you're faced with several decision alternatives and uncertain or risky future events. The application of decision analysis is extensive and approaches vary from the construction of tables and decision trees to the use of extensive decision analysis within computer applications and modeling. Whatever the approach, there is a need to evaluate complex risks by integrating many factors and applying considerations in a logistical and consistent way.

This exciting webcast presents a basic decision analysis method that can help YOU better evaluate complex safety-related issues.
