Trails Safe Lesson 5 - Stress & Performance

Trail Core Competencies
Summary

In Lesson five, we're going to look at stress and performance and how this affects each of us.

Overview

TRAIL SAFE! is a unique safety training program designed specifically for National Park Service (NPS) Trail Volunteers but is useful to everyone! It's based upon NPS Operational Leadership Training, where the Human Factor of safety is explored. Trail Safe! captures the core learning objectives of the 16 hour Operational Leadership course while allowing volunteers to learn from their own homes on-line.

The Trail Safe! series is found below in eight video lessons, each ranging in length from 18 to 40 minutes long. Viewing the entire eight lesson series will take approximately three hours. Watch them over the course of multiple days, or "binge watch" the entire series in three hours—it's up to you—but please watch them in numeric order from Lesson 1 through Lesson 8.

Here in Lesson five, we're going to look at stress and performance and how this affects each of us. Our objectives in lesson five will be to:

  • Describe the five step stress cycle
  • Describe the effects of stress on physiological, perceptual, and cognitive performance
