November 8, 2020 Virtual Session with Ron Gantt: Why don’t they follow the rules?

Presenter: Ron Gantt

When: November 8, 2022 11:45 AM to 1:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Virtual Registration: Click here to register via Zoom.


Safety seems like an easy problem to solve – if only we could get people to follow safety rules. Alas, that’s not what happens. But what if part of the problem isn’t with the workers, but with us? What if we’re misunderstanding the problem? Through reviewing relevant research and real-world case studies, we’ll review the problem of safety violations from a unique perspective. You’ll walk away with a fresh understanding of why people follow and violate safety rules, ways to design rules that improve safety performance, and how to develop a rule management system.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Describe the reasons we have rules in organizations.
  2. List the challenges created by rules for those doing work.
  3. List the rules organizations need for their rules.

About the Presenter:

Like so many others, Ron fell into the safety profession unintentionally. He took what was supposed to be a temporary job inspecting safety equipment in 2001. Quickly though he became more interested in safety as a career though so he took steps to increase his knowledge and skills. He did this through the normal methods, learning about regulatory requirements, getting an undergraduate degree in OSH and a graduate degree in safety engineering, and even becoming a Certified Safety Professional.

But almost a decade ago he grew frustrated with the traditional approaches to safety management. They seemed to be getting diminishing returns in an increasingly complex world, while often inadvertently disrespecting those the safety profession was meant to serve – workers. He started studying new approaches to safety, organizations, and people based in social science and systems thinking. Now he is Head of HSE – Americas for Yondr Group. He specializes in safety management systems, leadership, culture, and human factors.
