Gordon Graham is a 33 year veteran of California Law Enforcement. His education as a Risk Manager and experiernce as a practicing Attorney, coupled with his extensive background in law enforcement, has allowed him to rapidly become recognized as a leading professional speaker in both private and public sector organizations with multiple areas of expertise.

Today, Graham divides his time between study, research, writing, speaking and consulting in the disciplines of risk management. His innovative programs, based on the values and beliefs he learned as a child along with a passion for continuous improvement, are the standard for any organization that wants to improve existing operations and prevent things from going wrong.

Presentation Topics:

What is "Real" Risk Management? The phrase "Risk Management" gets thrown around quite a bit, but what is "real" risk management? It is more than the "safety" stuff. It is more than the "insurance" stuff. And it is more than the "ergonomics" stuff. Everything you do in your organization involves a level of Risk. In this program, Gordon will explain how to "recognize" the real risks you face. And he will give you some thoughts on how to "prioritize" these risks. Finally, Gordon will show you how to "mobilize" (act) to do something about the real risks you face in your organization.

Why Things Go Right - Why Things Go Wrong Most of what the good people in your organization do - they are doing right. When things don't go right there is the potential for nasty consequences. In this brief program Gordon will show you what the potential consequences are - and what are the "causational factors" most often responsible for these consequenes. He will then give you some proven strategies and tactics to address these problems - including a full understanding of the "risk/frequency" matrix and where it is essential that you focus your initial and ongoing training efforts.

Ethical Decision Making

An overview on the decision making process. Many people have never been taught how to make a decision and what needs to be considered in the decision making process. In this presentation a ten-step process, GRIDM (Graham's Rules for Improving Decision Making), is covered to demonstrate a technique to make better, ethical decisions.

NPCCR - Non Punitive Close Call Reporting

This class explains Mr. Graham's approach to sharing close calls with co-workers prior to someone being seriously hurt. When employees get injured, the incident that caused the injury has most likely occurred before to others, but often no one had reported these close calls previously. It is, therefore, a very popular topic in public safety operations.
