In this presentation, Dr Tom Reader is a Lecturer in Organisational and Social Psychology at the London School of Economics (LSE) takes us through a primer of how safety culture and human factors influence what goes on in the offshore realm.

Dr Reader’s research, teaching, and consultancy applies organisational and social psychology theory to explain why catastrophic safety failures occur in high-risk organisational settings (e.g. aviation, healthcare, oil and gas), and to identify ways of preventing future mishaps.

In the course of his presentation, Dr Reader focuses on:








    • Human Factors

    • Defining safety culture and safety climate

    • Considering the link between safety culture and behaviour

    • Challenges in improving and measuring safety culture and climate
