Shai Spetgang: “Free education creates a level playing field.”

Every day we manage our own risks. We get out of bed, we stand up. It’s actually advisable not to stand up right away, to wait ten seconds or so, to let our blood pressure equalise. Because if we just stand up out of bed, go from horizontal to vertical, we can blackout sometimes. That right there is risk management – leaving those ten seconds. We manage our risks all the time but what we don’t do is think about them, break it down and say, how could I have managed it better? A lot of our risk management is knee jerk reactions and reflex actions. And I argue in the course that in our daily lives we’ve got that down. But in our work life, we don’t have that because it’s not something we’ve grown up with. When you use a disk cutter, there’s like 20 things you need to do correctly so that if the disc explodes you don’t get it in your eye. There are all these rules and I’ve learned them over the years because I’m a registered safety manager. And so I wanted to share that.
