Releasing accident information: The conflict between learning from experience and the threat of litigation.

  • dates5Small

This presentation by David Concannon and Gareth Lock will look at the significant challenges involved in resolving the conflict between the litigious nature of society, which protects information and seeks to assign fault, and the need to share detailed and context rich information to show how and why incidents and accidents occurred so that risk can be managed effectively. The session will address both sides of the issue, with each presenter making their case and offering solutions. Next, the floor will be opened for questions. There is unlikely to be a clear answer but rather the aim is to generate discourse and mature discussion on the ways we can learn from individuals’ and systemic failures.
