Risk, ‘psychic numbing’, and wellbeing take centre stage at Lloyd’s Register Foundation International Conference 2019

The Global Safety Podcast, Episode 3 - World Risk Poll

The Global Safety Podcast explores how engineers and scientists are making the world a safer place.

Working alongside Gallup, Lloyd's Register Foundation have produced The World Risk Poll, the first-ever global survey of risk. What keeps people up at night? What dangers have they experienced first hand? What do they fear online? and are government decisions and media coverage reflecting genuine risk? 

In this edition of The Global Safety Podcast, we'll reveal some results of the huge survey that spoke to over 150,000 people in 142 countries, and has enabled the creation of three new indexes: The World Worry Index, The Experience of Harm Index and The Government Safety Performance Index.

To download the World Risk Poll in full and explore the key findings, please visit the World Risk Poll website.

This special edition of The Global Safety Podcast features insights from:

  • Sarah Cumbers - Director of Evidence and Insight for Lloyd's Register Foundation
  • Andrew Rzepa - Partner at Gallup
  • Tracey Brown - Director of Sense About Science
  • Manal Azzi - Senior Occupational Safety and Health Specialist at the International Labour Organisation (ILO)
