The Safe Systems team focuses on quality improvement and system reform efforts in health and human services. We have specific expertise in applying safety science to improve safety, reliability, and effectiveness in organizations. Our approach leverages tools like organizational assessment and systems analysis of critical incidents, including deaths and near deaths, to build team culture and help systems learn and improve. By moving from cultures of fear to cultures of learning, our team-based methodology—derived from other high-risk industries like healthcare and aviation—seeks better outcomes for families across the continuum of care.
