Understanding risk in safety critical environments
In your safety critical environment it’s essential that you know how your team member will cope, adapt and make decisions. RADAR provides a psychological assessment of and individual’s personality style in relation to risk, attitude towards risk and his or her capacity to make decisions regarding risk.
The RADAR Model
RADAR assesses four different aspects of the individual in relation to risk and produces a unique report for each participant. The report includes detailed review of each area, coaching questions to consider the implication of the assessment results in the context of his or her actual job, and developmental suggestions to help individuals plan their next steps.
The model underpinning RADAR is based on robust research and combines the best of the current theories of human factors and risk. Unlike some other assessments that only look at certain aspects of personality, the RADAR assessment takes a more comprehensive look at the individual and includes personality, attitude, decision making and cognitive capacity.
Benefits of using the RADAR
Organisations can use the tool for the development of existing team members to explore their risk profiles and identify gaps that can be addressed through coaching or personal development.
Applying the RADAR tool can help you to reduce risks by deploying the right staff and developing those at the greatest risk. In short, it should be an integral part of your QHSE people development strategy.
