Crude Move Webinar Series: Understanding Hazards, Risk and Security
When we discuss “hazards, risks, and impacts” related to the movement of crude oil, how can there be such a divergence of opinion? Part of the problem is that different professions, agencies and industries use very different, definitions for these terms, and apply them to different subsets of a complex unified system of systems. We will explore the use of key terms across disciplines, and how a lack of common usage negatively impacts our ability to effectively address issues related to crude oil movement within the Great Lakes Basin.
This webinar will cover :
- The foundation and complexity of “systems thinking.”
- A discussion of critical terms used to discuss crude oil movement choices across disciplines.
- Linking language use to assumptions for clear communications.
- The complexity of examining “relative risk” across multiple modes of transportation.
