Safety Moment - Hazards are Fluid - Those Babies Move!

21Sep

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


There is a belief that hazard are stable and that if we were simply able to identify all of the hazards and then take care of those hazards we should not ever have an accident.  That is just wrong.

Our workers discover new hazards, hazards that we did not see or think about, all the time.  

Thanks for listening to this safety moment.  It is fun to have you on the brain train.

PAPod 88 - Edgar Schein - The Father of Organizational Culture Speaks

17Sep

Safety Podcast, Safety Program, Investigations, Human Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Excellence, Resilience Engineering, Safety and Resilience Incentives, Safety Culture, Organizational Culture, Culture Studies, Safety Culture Surveys


OK!   In the podcast world there are guests and then there are GUESTS.  The bigger the name the bigger the "GET."  I would have never dreamt that I would have Edgar Schein on our little PreAccident Podcast.  Never in a million years!  And yet...

Here is Dr. Edgar Schein, Professor at MIT Sloan School of Management.  This discussion is remarkable because Dr. Schein talks about his reluctant entry in to the world of safety culture and the new view.  His comment is, "I did not choose safety.  Safety choose me."  This conversation is interesting, challenging, and remarkable.  I know you will find this an important podcast.

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  Special Thanks to our sponsor for this important episode, ORCHSE.COM.   Tell your friends and keep listening.   You make the podcast go!

Safety Moment - Fundamental Attribution Error

14Sep

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


Today's Safety Podcast Moment is meant to introduce what I think is one of the biggest barriers to the diffusion of New Safety ideas.   Fundamental Attribution Errors happen all the time.  You might say these bias are built-in to the human condition.   We always search for someone or something to blame... and this is the fancy-pants word for this search.

Listen to this carefully.....and thank you for being a part of this podcast.  You make the podcast go.   Tell your friends and write us a review.   

See you next time.

This episode of the PreAccident podcast is a double treat.  I did a podcast for Randy Cadiaux and while I was doing his podcast I recorded it to share with you guys.  It was a two for one, efficient and safe...I saved time and you get to see how the other half lives.  Randy is a top-notch safety guy with a background in Crew Resource Management CRM.  He is super experienced and quite amazing at the work he does.

Our conversation is about the work we all do in general.  It is a fun conversation.  I think you will like it.  Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make the show go!!

Safety Moment - Organizations Close to the Edge

7Sep

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


The very best team you have in your organization co-exists with the very worst team in your organization.  Teams that are operating close to the control limit have a BIG problem - that problem is they look just like teams that are not close to the control limit edge.  

This safety moment introduces this idea.  Think about it for a couple of minutes.... now what are you going to do?

Thanks for listening to this and to all the podcasts.  You make the show go.

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.
