Just like in aviation and the nuclear industry, child welfare is a safety critical industry and high stakes high consequence decisions are made every day by child welfare workers and caregivers.

Dr. Michael Cull, Associate Director for the Center for Innovation in Population Health (IPH Center), was recently interviewed in Welcome to the Field, a podcast for child welfare professionals, caregivers, and community partners. This podcast is hosted by Cassie Gillespie and Pete Cudney at the University of Vermont’s Child Welfare Training Partnership.

Dr. Cull discusses his work applying safety science in child welfare, and the work he is doing in Vermont as part of the IPH Center’s support for the National Partnership for Child Safety.
