Safety Moment - If it is emotionally satisfying - Do the opposite

30Nov

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

This safety moment comes from a HR person who said she learned a long time ago that if punishment feels emotionally satisfying, punishment is not the right thing to do>

That made me start thinking about culture and justice and all the things that make up our constant struggle to make the world a better place.   We know that if we punish to make ourselves feel better about the organiztion that is the wrong thing to do.  I worry that much of what happens is that we make the worker the bad guy in order to shift blame away from who we are as an organization.  That can't be right.

Listen and see what you think!  Remember culture cannot be just - people must be just in order to make a just culture.   

Thanks for listening.  This is a good one!  Go to Itunes and tell the world just how "5 star" you feel...thanks again!

Safety Moment - Awareness Overpowers Ignorance

23Nov

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

Knowing less does not make you smarter.  You don't know what you don't know...and you don't know a lot about your operations...  there is good news!  There are people in your organization that are smarter about how work is done AND they work for you!  

In a part of our ongoing effort to shift the way we see our workers - from problems to be fixed to solutions to be harnessed - this episode is built upon the idea that by simply going out and learning you have a weapon to combat Management Bias...

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make the show go.  We are the most popular podcast on safety and reliabilty in the world.  Thanks for that.

Safety Moment - Prediction of the Present

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


Safety Moment Alert!  I love this episode and I thought of it doing the last episode.  We don't predict the future - we can't really predict the future worth a crap!  What we can do a much better job at doing is to learn to predict the present.  Knowing what is happening helps us understand what will happen.

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make the show go!   Tell your friends and coworkers to listen to this and all the other episodes.  We will slowly change the world.  Yay!

Safety Moment - Certain Terms for Uncertain Events

9Nov

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


This safety moment is pretty ding-dang important.  We must use certain language to describe uncertain outcomes...Because we cannot predict what will happen exactly, we must use the language we use to describe the question in the most specific way we can possibly can.   That is our charge.  That is our job.

This episode is short and sweet, and yet it is very powerful.   Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make the show go!  Tell your friends - tell you coworkers - tell everybody.  Thanks!

Welcome Dave Fink and Patrick Morris to this episode of the PreAccident Podcast.  I am so glad to have them with us for this discussion.  I never get the chance to talk to Project people - because they are project people.  Project people almost never have time to sit around a talk.  Major Capitol Projects suck all the attention out of any organization.  They are complex animals.  The demand Attention.

This talk has a focus on leadership and capacity to project work successfully.  You will notice that I have them define success.  It is all about the customer.

Safety Moment - It is not “Just Culture” it is “Just Leadership,”

2Nov

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


I am pretty convinced that we don't want a just culture.  What we want is a leadership culture that is just.   Think that one over....

I started thinking about the idea that we cannot attach culture to something as amorphous as safety.... it must be true of something just as amorphous as justness...

Enjoy this discussion.   Think about it a bit.
