The ‘systems approach’ is now widely embedded within other safety-critical domains such as aviation, healthcare, transportation and process control and its benefits to safety and organisational learning have been significant. Through exploring the systems approach to accident causation and prevention, Clare will demonstrate the importance of looking ‘up and out’ for contributory factors and prevention strategies. She will challenge the traditional approach to risk management and assessment which largely focuses on hazards and actors within the immediate context of the delivery of the activity.

Clare Dallat is an executive with The Outdoor Education Group, based in Victoria, Australia, a large not-for-profit outdoor education organization that works with 40,000 participants
per year and employs more than 400 staff. For 13 years, she led their risk management team and now heads up the innovation team. Clare is also a researcher with the University of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
