Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Conversations are usually driven by a small number of facts. However during a high stress situation or when discussing an emotionally charged subject, people tend to focus on the potential hazards or outcomes to such a degree that it minimizes their ability to process facts. So while a scientific group may want to communicate risk by showing facts and data, the audience may only hear potential outcomes such as cancer, illness, death, etc.. This webinar will highlight some of the more common communication issues related to onshore oil and gas development, chemical exposure and disease outbreaks.

Understanding the principles behind risk communication will enable a company to gain public trust and credibility while effectively communicating with the audience. We will provide the tools for effective risk communication. This webinar is geared towards professionals that may need to discuss technical matters in a highly stressful or emotionally charged situation.
