Utility Safety in Depth: Managing Risk Through Cognitive Impairment Testing

November 8, 2021

Often, when the term "cognitive impairment" comes up, most people immediately think about drug or alcohol impairment. And while that is an issue, there are many other things that can impair one's mental clarity and, in turn, the safety of the job. In this episode, Kate Wade talks to Lee Marchessault of Workplace Safety Solutions and Jeff Sease of Predictive Safety SRP about the different types of cognitive impairments that can impact safety and what can be done to bring awareness to and reduce those impairment issues.  

This episode is an extension of “Managing Risk Through Cognitive Impairment Testing,” an article featured in the August-September 2021 issue of Incident Prevention magazine.
