Safety Moment - Your Karma Ran Over My Dogma

28Dec

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

The biggest problem we have in making our system reliable is the bias we have that we know the answer...

When we think we know the answer we don't look at the problem.   The safety Pyramid is a great example of safety mythology becoming hardwired in to our safety thinking.  It is not right.  It is not empirical.  It is just made up - and yet I'll bet in your company there are folks right now who think that if they stop a first aid they will have stopped a fatality.  

Ahhhhhhh  Dogma.... the sweet belief that we have it right.  It totally gets in the way of thinking, learning, and changing.  

Happy Holidays and See you next year!

Here is today's lesson in both sociology and economics.  

Enjoy and learn from this podcast.  It is really important.   

And when you listen to this podcast - think about the internet.  The internet is our public pasture in the middle of the town square.  Are we aware of the potential dangers that exist when we all use the commons for our own good.

This is a really important safety moment.  Listen Twice.

Thanks for being a part of the Most Listened to Podcast on Safety in the Commons.

This episode of the podcast lets you meet Forrest Hestor, Electrician, Inventor, Husband, and Gravity Controller - you wait and see.  Forest is the force behind Tutus Dropped Object Prevetention Solutions.  

I met Forrest at a meeting and just got excited by his excitment and zeal for helping to find a solution to a really big problem in many industries.  He comes at this from the sharp end of the stick - a worker with a solution is a powerful force - and Forrest is a great example of how one man with passion just may change the world.  Enjoy this podcast.  It is really motivating.

Safety Moment - Designing Systems that Support Their Own Self-Interests

14Dec

Safety Podcast, Safety Program, Investigations, Human Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Excellence, Resilience Engineering, Safety and Resilience Incentives. The most popular Safety Podcast in the World.

We don't design systems to support the continued use and joy of the system.  We have to make systems that we want to use because the system is constantly reinforcing itself.   We want a system that is not just efficient, but also enjoyable to use.  I know that sounds like something you would never say at work - at THAT IS THE POINT of this podcast.  We design systems to be fufill the self-interests of the organization, but not the system and users of the systems.

Thanks for listening to this episode.  You are the greatest.  I hope this podcast makes you want to listen to the next podcast - it is doesn't, I am not following my own advice.  Thanks!

Safety Moment - Success is BEST when Shared!

7Dec

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

Your organization has waaaaaay more success then failure!!!!  You are always winning, to quote a recent election held somewhere in the world.  You have much success.

But success only matters when it is shared and learned.   We know that we are better when we talk about success.  This safety moment tackles that very issue.  You don't talk about safety success at all...and you should.

Thanks for being on this podcast with me.  It is just you and I.  We are the final two listeners and talkers and we only have each other.  We must make the best of it!

Talk about success.  Learn from success.  Be a Winner!
