Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Overview

Culture: The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves.

A positive risk culture is one where staff at every level appropriately manage risk as an intrinsic part of their day-to-day work. Such a culture supports an open discussion about uncertainties and opportunities, encourages staff to express concerns, and maintains processes to elevate concerns to appropriate levels.
