Rajni Walia, PhD, is a principal consultant for DEKRA Organizational Safety and Reliability. For over a
decade, she has been leading performance management, organizational assessment and development,
and human error reduction consultations with a focus on fostering strong performance reliability.
“Simply requesting that employees ‘remain situationally aware’ is not a strategy informed by science and will always be met with skepticism and flawed execution,” says Rajni Walia of DEKRA Organizational Safety and Reliability. “We need to consider how we can improve situational awareness when it matters most.”
“What if the human vision system itself is a hazard within the workforce?” asks DEKRA Organizational Safety and Reliability’s Rajni Walia, who says that “despite the fact that so much of our brains are devoted to seeing, there’s no guarantee that we see correctly.”
