Todd Conklin spent 25 years at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Senior Advisor for Organizational and Safety Culture. Los Alamos National Laboratory is one of the world’s foremost research and development laboratories; Dr. Conklin has been working on the Human Performance program for the last 15 years of his 25-year career. It is in this fortunate position where he enjoys the best of both the academic world and the world of safety in practice.
Conklin holds a Ph.D. in organizational behavior from the University of New Mexico. He speaks all over the world to executives, groups and work teams who are interested in better understanding the relationship between the workers in the field and the organization’s systems, processes, and programs. He has brought these systems to major corporations around the world. Conklin practices these ideas not only in his own workplace, but also in the event investigations at other workplaces around the world.
Conklin defines safety at his workplace like this: “Safety is the ability for workers to be able to do work in a varying and unpredictable world.” Conklin lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico and thinks that Human Performance is the most meaningful work he has ever had the opportunity to live and teach.
Today’s world is increasing in complexity and risks. Because of this, more insight and overview is required with regard to risk factors. And with that more useful information and communication is required for a safe working environment and reliable operation for all stakeholders.
We assist our customers to address three basic questions:
1. Do we understand what can go wrong?
2. Do we know what our systems are to prevent this happening?
3. Do we have information to assure us they are working effectively?
To deal with these questions and with constant change, companies need new and innovative means to manage their risks. Our goal is to offer world class barrier based risk management software solutions to identify and manage operational, tactical and strategic risks – from the work floor to a corporate level and across the enterprise.
We believe that barrier based risk management can contribute to less incidents, but also to better insight and knowledge transfer, improved efficiency, higher returns, cost savings, better quality and even a competitive strategic advantage.
Our outlook on prevention is unique. Just like our DNA, it is distinct! This outlook is indeed a reflection of our beliefs and values. As a result, a complex equation arises when human beings are faced with risk; and, at this moment, their behaviour reveals much of their outlook regarding prevention.
Therefore, an organization’s values and beliefs are in constant struggle with the individual value systems that are a part of it. The “Prevention Reflex TM” contributions management system thus becomes the best way to ensure the contribution of all an organization’s stakeholders to a group management system.
