PAPod 46 - A Fireman Speaks about Safety - Bert Brugghemans

28Nov

How does classical music and emergency operations fit together?  The quick answer is that both of them require, need, embrace an operational manager, an incident commander, a conductor.   This podcast is by one of my favorite people I have ever met giving a speech.  He is smart, funny, clever, creative, and damn good at what he does.  Please meet Bert Brugghemans, Fire Officer in the city of Antwerp, Belgium.   

Bert discusses his ideas and learning from a lifetime of working in the emergency response world.  He talks about safety.  He talks about communication.  He talks about reliability.  He talks about safety differently.   You are going to love this podcast.  If not. full money back.
Listen carefully to Bert Brugghemans discuss leadership and its importance to our world.  This one is for you!  Thanks for listening, you make the podcast go!

Safety Moment - Thanksgiving

25Nov

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.  This safety moment is created to remind us that mostly things go right in our organizations.   Mostly people don't get hurt.  Mostly work happens they way we plan it to happen.  Mostly our jobs are spent making the world better. 

That is important to remember.  Safety is not the absence of failure.  Safety is the presence of capacity...and our world has so much capacity. 
Thanks for listening to the podcast.  Tell your friends.  Happy Thanksgiving!
