Safety Moment - Humans are more comfortable with culpability then chaos

23Mar

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


Why is it that we are more satisfied and comfortable with blame over the idea that bad things can happen in our organizations?  This Operational Excellence moment introduces this discussion to our community. We really do not want people to feel uncertainty, we really don't like chaos, we drive the unknown out of our thinking...all in favor of blame and punishment...and we have done if since history began writing itself.  

Think this over and thank you for being a part of this podcast.  You make the podcast interesting and popular.   Could not do it without you!

Meet Marcie Frazier.  You will love her.  She is a National Director of Safety for a rather large mining organization.  She is quick witted, funny, and full of energy.  She is also in the middle of shifting an organization towards the new view - after a large event.   
This episode is a great conversation that Todd and Marcie had about her journey to the new ideas and processes that make-up Safety Differently.
Your feedback has told me that some of your favorite episodes are the one's where normal safety folks talk about their journey.  This episode is exactly that...enjoy.

This safety moment is a great introduction to the new view of safety by the great Sidney Dekker.  I have been looking for the perfect little elevator speech on what we do and how we think.  I found it at Griffith University and a promotional overview of "Safety Differently."
Enjoy this little safety moment.  I know I did.  It is good for us to go back and remind ourselves of the first principles of the new view.
