How we make sense in what come encounter with could be a definition of awareness, how we act upon an immediate action will tell how much I am aware of what is going around me. Making sense of the information available, making a high quality of interpretation and putting accurate anticipation from a written information or a verbal one is enhancing the level of awareness with us. Those practices and training that might help in increasing the situational awareness efficiently. Awareness is the ability to know directly and perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects, thoughts, emotions
I have read and observed a lot of accidents either its cars, train, bus, and aircraft accidents, in fact, I have seen some cars accidents happening or collision in front of me. Also, I was about to do serious accidents twice in my past life; I have experienced the lake of awareness in that cases and other similar cases back at work.
I firmly believe that most of the car accidents are because of human errors and because of not paying enough attention to the surrounding available information -lack of awareness- also, not paying full attention to driving.
Similarly, the awareness is crucial in working environment and in all daily working activities. Awareness should be rising at all level of the work culture through involving all employees in a particular organization and through sharing information at all level that will lead to increase the efficiency in the work and will minimize human errors effectively. Also, raising the situational awareness gives best utilizing of resources.
I have learned a lot of useful information about the situational awareness; my next challenge will be to apply this in real life situation. Also, raising the situational awareness back at work. Although, this will require high effort and a lot of dedication the outcome will deduce at the end worth all of that.
Moreover, the situational awareness is not a one person duty. It might be described as completed process -from my point of view-, as input, process, and output. Also, It could be true that situational awareness emphasized by managers and leaders where all the information available shared and all employees involved. Knowledge (information, data) required should be provided, be clearly accessible, and well-displayed in order to achieve the best outcome of a set goals and objectives.
