SafeChoice – SAFESTOP


Have you ever felt that you made the wrong choice? Made the wrong decision? Not sure what happened? Did I have a choice? How did I make that decision? Could my decision-making process be improved? What is a decision-making process? 

SAFECHOICE considers how we manage life’s choices and make decisions daily. We employ a 3-step approach.

Step # 1. Choice

We consider the many choices we face every day, how these choices are presented and acted upon.

Step # 2. Filters (Bias)

Next, we look at the filters we use when considering our choices. These filters are a form of bias that can impact our choices and decisions. We may not even realize that theses filters exit. We explore the filters using 3 categories.

  1. Social Bias
  2. Memory Bias
  3. Cognitive Bias

Is some circles all 3 filters could be called cognitive bias but for the purpose of this presentation we have broken them out into 3 separate categories.

STEP # 3. Decision Making

The last part of the presentation looks at how we make decisions. Which model do we use?

We explore 2 decision-making models that anyone can use to improve decision making.


Consider the choice, recognize the bias and make better decisions.


What about when it does not feel right? When the situation is unsafe and you cannot correct it. When someone else's safety is in jeopardy? What options are available to you? What decisions will you make?

In many workplaces, employees are told that they have the ability to stop work when it is unsafe. The problem is the tool and techniques are not in place to address SAFESTOP, so when it happens people are blamed and the process suffers.

Why is it so important today?

  1. New employees
  2. Lack of experience
  3. Contractors
  4. Changing work environment
  5. Serious Injury & Fatality Prevention (SIF's) 

SAFESTOP for Everyone!
