Description: Safety is typically talked about in a context of the absence of injury. The field of resilience engineering has been advocating that we think about safety differently, by taking a systems view and begin to see how people create safety in unsafe systems by managing risk. There is growing recognition that safety is an emergent behavior of our complex system of human performance. A model of human performance focused on resilience and adaptation will be presented.

Keywords: psychological safety, human performance
