KBAM: Awareness workshop

Today's workshop on information, knowledge and awareness was very informative. I have to admit the video had an impact on me as all these disasters could have been avoided. Although I am not burdened by it, I do feel the sense of responsibility that a manager has in ensuring the safety of workers.

I have also learnt that it is important to not just gather information but also interpret it effectively and anticipate what could go wrong. Hence, I would personally like to develop my situational awareness more.

In addition, I now know at least one thing that I will be focusing on when I start my new job. The early days will be a perfect opportunity for me to observe the processes and ensure that any relevant information is readily available to employees. I would also like to emphasize the need on being effective rather than just efficient, as workers can sometimes overlook safety in order to be fast and efficient.
