Webinar 6: Reframing Risk as Uncertainty

Have you ever conducted a traditional tree risk assessment, identified multiple risk factors (e.g., decaying base, dead limbs overhead, nearby power lines), and then asked yourself, “now what”? At Lewis, we had an “a ha” moment when we realized that the things that kill workers are not the things with the highest perceived risk but seem to be the things that are the most difficult to control.* In other words, the level of uncertainty or controllability is subjective and differs based on the length of service, depth of knowledge, risk tolerance, etc. of the individual.

In this webinar, we introduce methods and HuP tools like the Lewis Uncertainty Gauge to help manage uncertainty and uncover recurring patterns of risk.
