Title. Implementing Risk Communication: Overcoming the Barriers

Featuring. Peter Sandman

Description. When people are excessively concerned about a small risk, the biggest problem isn’t figuring out what to do. It’s getting your company or agency to do it. After a six-minute introduction, this 76-minute video is devoted to three kinds of barriers to implementation … and ways to overcome them: 1. Cognitive barriers (34 minutes) — the “yes buts” that organizations give as their reasons for not moving forward. 2. Organizational barriers (18 minutes) — the characteristics of organizations that actually keep them from moving forward. 3. Psychological barriers (18 minutes) — the reasons even people who consider themselves committed may hesitate to move forward. When the American Industrial Hygiene Association produced this video (in VHS format) in 1994, I wasn’t yet routinely using the term “outrage management.” In the terminology I now use, this video is all about overcoming barriers to outrage management. | Keywords. Risk communication, Crisis, Barriers, Organizations, Public
