Today’s students face a silent epidemic. Risk-taking behaviors, critical errors and lapses in judgment cause millions of unintentional injuries each year in North America, resulting in sometimes grueling pain for students and families, as well as lost classroom time. In some cases, these injuries permanently alter students’ lives. And 7000 to 8000 times each year these injuries prove fatal – about one per hour.

We have a responsibility to our students to make sure they have the skills necessary to assess risk and reduce unintentional injuries.
In this thought-provoking 90-minute webinar, Mike Shaw will highlight how behavior-based skills such as greater awareness, attention and intention can reduce injuries, as well as other types of errors – including academic errors.
Attendees will gain key insights and lessons learned on understanding risk and knowing personal limitations from Mike’s ski coaching and performance background. He will share unique perspectives on risk vs. reward, and what dangerous sports and death-defying stunts have to do with the average student’s safety and performance. Attendees will walk away with fresh insights and practicable techniques for reducing risk and errors.
Research has shown that mental states like rushing, frustration, fatigue and complacency, which most students find themselves in almost every day, cause or contribute to critical errors. These critical errors often put a student in the path of a hazard. Mr. Shaw will explain how this state-to-error risk pattern is responsible for up to 95% of student injuries, and will present skills that students – and educators -- can use to improve safety and reduce critical errors in school and all facets of their lives.
