The agenda for this event has now changed.
Johnny Mitchell of Caspian Psychology will now be running a presentation/workshop on:
“Safe Traits: the opportunities and considerations for using a new task-based personality assessment to improve safety”
It will cover:
- What is personality?
- How does personality impact safety behaviour?
- What does the research say are the important personality traits for safety?
- Deriving safety competency (potential) from personality traits
- Considerations for using personality assessment in selection and development
- Objective personality tasks (Mosaic) – avoiding faking and lack of self-awareness
