Can "learning to see" improve safety in the workplace? Hear about a new project from the Campbell Institute and the Toledo Museum of Art to discover how better visual literacy can improve hazard recognition. Also learn how Campbell Institute member Owens Corning has already incorporated visual literacy into their safety training.
Joy Inouye is the Research Associate for the Campbell Institute. She has worked on several research topics for the Institute including EHS leading indicators, risk perception, and contractor safety management. She is co-author of a recent journal article on leading indicators research and has co-presented on leading indicators at various conferences in the past year. The research of contractor safety has recently been featured in the BNA Occupational Safety and Health Reporter, the NIOSH Science Blog, and other online safety communities.
Tom Daniel is an experienced safety professional with over 27 years' experience in a number of different industries, including: petrochemical, pharmaceutical, construction, and currently in manufacturing. He joined Owens Corning in 2004 and has held several EHS positions within the company, currently he's the Global EH&S Leader working in the World HQ office in Toledo, Ohio. He is responsible for the development and implementation of standardized corporate safety programs. He has successfully implemented many programs including an internal Hazard Recognition and Control (HRC) certification program. Thousands of employees have been trained and over 800 employees have been certified as specialists (by demonstrating their ability to utilize the techniques in their work environment). Recently, a second version of the program has been developed that incorporates techniques of Visual Literacy, a course taught by the Toledo Museum of Art, furthering employees' ability to "see" potential hazards that they may have otherwise not been aware of. Employees are now being certified in HRC 2.0 and are reporting a much higher level of ability to recognize potential hazards in their work areas.
