Safety Moment - Traveling Far

31Aug

Safety Podcast, Safety Program, Investigations, Human Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Excellence, Resilience Engineering, Safety and Resilience Incentives

This is taken from recent television...but I am so glad I listened.   If you want to go fast travel alone...if you want to go far travel together.    

Could any one statement be a better description of the New View?  We must include the workers.  The workers are not the problem...the workers are our travel mates.

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make these little shows go.  Tell your friends.

PAPod 84 - Marc Yeston LIVE! at HPRCT

20Aug

Safety Podcast, Safety Program, Investigations, Human Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Excellence, Resilience Engineering, Safety and Resilience Incentives


What can I say about Marc?  He's amazing.  He's smart.  He's super experienced.  He is a great leader.  He is fun at a party.  He has managed more high-risk work then you have...and I really mean that...way more.

This is Marc's presentation at HPRCT 2016...He killed it by talking about the power of planning work in order to create capacity.   Need I say more?   I just have one comment to make sure you listen to this episode.  Marc asked how much longer he had during his presentation and a participant from the audience yelled out: "the rest of the meeting!"  THAT IS HIGH PRAISE.

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  Tell your friends and right a review on iTunes.  Thanks

Safety Moment - Rewarding A while hoping for B

10Aug

Safety Podcast, Safety Program, Investigations, Human Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Excellence, Resilience Engineering, Safety and Resilience Incentives


In 1995, Steven Kerr wrote an article that has become a "standard" in the business executive reading list.  It is a great little discussion about how we create incentives in our worlds.

He starts we the idea that our systems our "Fouled Up."  I think he is right on target.  We reward something while expecting other things...and we do it all the time.  Listen to this and see what you think?

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make this baby go.  Tell your friends.

He is the author of the bestselling histories Ghost SoldiersBlood and ThunderHellhound On His Trail, and, most recently, In the Kingdom of Ice, which recounts the heroic polar voyage of the U.S.S. Jeannette during the Gilded Age.

Safety Moment - Signal Strength

3Aug

Safety Podcast, Safety Program, Investigations, Human Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Excellence, Resilience Engineering


Everything is about signal strength.  A cross-walk that is too short to make it all the way across the road has bad signal strength.   A door that pushes when it looks like it should pull has poor signal strength.  A light-switch that is in an odd place had unusual signal strength.  Everything is about signal strength.

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make this program a success.  Keep listening.

PAPod 81 - Bob Nelms - Failsafe Networks and RCA

30Jul

Safety Podcast, Safety Program, Investigations, Human Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Excellence


Bob is a degreed Aerospace Engineer, having graduated from Texas A&M University in 1970. He worked at McDonnell Douglas as an Aeronautical Loads Engineer on the F4 Phantom Fighter until 1973, then became employed at Allied Chemical's Nylon plant in Chesterfield, Virginia --an internationally recognized leader in Manufacturing Reliability at the time. Nelms eventually became part of Allied's Corporate Reliability Center, where he concentrated his attention on Failure Analysis until the Center was disbanded in 1986 -- whence he formed Failsafe.
 
His professional work initially focused on the physical causes of machinery failure. He developed an expertise in experimental stress analysis, including strain gage and photoelasticity studies. He also became involved in probabilistic reliability studies, including Weibull and other statistical analysis methods. But his passion emerged when it became obvious to him that human beings cause all physical failure. Since 1996, Bob has devoted most of his time trying to clarify the sensitive human issues at the root of all failure.
