OERt CIWG | Mindfulness and the Psychology of Safety

Hosted by:  To be confirmed

We’ve all been there. Distracted and not paying attention to the present.

Being on auto-pilot happens. 

There are over 7 million results when searching the term mindfulness on Google.

Mindfulness means being aware. It means knowing what you are doing. Being present.

Studies show that behaviour is a key causal factor of safety incidents.

  • How often is our mind on other things rather than the task at hand?
  • Are there times you carry out habitual tasks at work on autopilot and wonder later if you did them correctly?
  • Do you think it would be safer art work if you were more able to concentrate on the present moment?

In this common interest workgroup we will explore how to create a mindful organisation.

Get some great insights from others on how they address this issue in their organisations. Meet some fantastic people and form some useful networks to draw upon later.
