About Dr. Todd Conklin

Todd Conklin spent 25 years at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Senior Advisor for Organizational and Safety Culture. Los Alamos National Laboratory is one of the world’s foremost research and development laboratories. Dr. Conklin has worked on the Human Performance Program for the last 15 years of his 25-year career and is fortunate to enjoy the best of both the academic world and the world of safety in practice. Conklin holds a PhD in organizational behavior from the University of New Mexico. He speaks all over the world to major corporations, executives, groups, and work teams that are interested in better understanding the relationship between the workers in the field and the organization’s systems, processes, and programs. Conklin practices these ideas not only in his own workplace, but also in event investigations at other workplaces around the world. Conklin defines safety at his workplace like this: “Safety is the ability for workers to be able to do work in a varying and unpredictable world.” Conklin lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and thinks human performance is the most meaningful work he has ever had the opportunity to live and teach.
