6 Personality Types We’ve Witnessed During Hazard Studies

…and how to deal with them.

The world is made up of different personalities from extreme extroverts to indecisive introverts and everything in between, and people react to situations differently. It’s what makes us unique.
When you go to a risk assessment facilitation meeting (be it a Hazards and Operability Analysis, or HAZOP; Failure Mode and Effects Analysis, or FMEA; Job Hazards Analysis, or JHA; Root Cause Analysis, or RCA; etc.) you probably have a good idea of how everyone in the room is going to behave. While most people will be helpful and allow the meeting to run smoothly, there are times participants unintentionally make the brainstorming session counterproductive.

This article covers how the risk assessment facilitator’s ability to understand and manage the different personalities is one of the key factors in generating a successful risk study.
