Learn how work really happens – and develop worker-driven solutions to improve it.
Learning Teams represent a new and intuitive method for organisations to learn about events within their organisation (incidents and accidents), and from normal work.
What do Learning Teams provide?
This context-rich information gained from the process identifies the real problems, where systems may be brittle and what is working well, which fosters decisions and actions that are relevant to building system resilience. Learning Teams provide a collaborative approach to improve and enhance operations, capacity and rigour around critical controls. The true strength of Learning Teams is that the focus is on normal operations. While this can be useful in incident response activities, they can be used at any time to learn, providing a proactive means to safety management.
Learning Teams can generate reports and actions much like traditional safety activity methods, however the real benefits are seen in the engagement and commitment generated. There is a basic human need to be heard, understood and included. Learning Teams provide a platform for this to happen, and the stories shared post-learning team sessions can be transformational. The depth of learning and insight from the process enables better comprehension of problems, creating effective solutions and allows for informed decision making. (Source: Southpac Group)

Traditional risk assessments are used by organisations to justify decisions already made and to ratify controls that are already in place. Risk assessments can become a ‘cut & paste’ exercise with little or no innovation discovered. Controls remain predominately focused on ‘Safety Work’ rather than the ‘Safety of Work’.
Utilising a Learning Teams approach to risk assessments, allows a facilitator to explore the work as normal, focus on assessing genuine risks and enable an environment that encourages a risk assessment team to innovate. This approach can be easily incorporated into organisations existing risk assessment processes.
All over the world, companies in a range of industries are beginning to benefit from the use of Learning Teams. What are Learning Teams and why are they so effective?
