Sometimes little rules to live by save time, save energy, save emotion, and are the smartest ways to begin exploring and explaining the universe around you.

I am really mixed on this episode.  On one hand I am kind of freaked out that it does not include a conversation with some experts on this topic.  On the other hand I am completely disappointed with the experts on this topic.

We are thinking about fatalities wrong...

This episode, I am super proud of this episode, offers you a new set of questions.  Listen to this and see what you think.   I hope it makes you think in a new way about a serious and significant problem.

Thanks for listening.  You guys amaze me with your dedication.  The podcast is just growing and growing and growing.  Tell your friends and co-workers.  Do it now while you are thinking about it.

We want bad accidents to be predictive.  We want a way to tell our organization that something bad is about to happen.  We want Heinrich's pyramid to be accurate, effective, and predictive...

That is what we want.   It is not what we have.

Bad accidents hide in normal work.  That is what this safety moment discusses.

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make this show go.  You are the greatest.

PAPod 130 - People Really Are The Solution - Meet Angela Durkin

I recored this episode of the PAPod in a hotel lounge in Copenhagen, Denmark.  It was a beautiful day and we had just had an amazing event with a group of senior operations leaders.  

I just mentioned to the COO, Angela Durkin, that I wiould love to get her on the podcast and she said yes.   You never want to give a senior leader much time to think about the decision to be on the podcast because they will think of many reasons why it is not the best idea.  

So we grabbed a couple of chairs and had a discussion.  It was great.  Thanks to Maersk and Angela for making this happen.  You will like this podcast a lot.

Thanks to you as well.   You make the podcast go.   It is very fun to have you on board.  Tell your friends and get ready for some fun.

Organizations that are good a reliability use one trick.  They keep the discussion of risk alive, operationally, everyday. 

Sounds easy?  It is not an easy thing to do, but it is a vital way to create real-time safety in all the work you do.

Thanks for being part of the podcast.  Happy July 4th a day late.

Tell your friends to listen.  It really helps us out a lot.
