PAPod 55 - Tony Muschara - Its “Risk” Differently!


Safety Podcast, Safety Differently, Safety Leadership, Human Performance, New View Safety, Operational Excellence, Safety

Here is Tony Muschara.  We love Tony.  He is the most popular podcast guest ever in the history of the PreAccident Podcast.  Tony is amazing and in many ways is one of the early adopters, thinkers, and writers of the new view in the United States.
Tony has become very interested in how workers view risk.  This new interest area is very aligned with the likes of John Adams and others.  You are going to find this podcast a bit mind bending.  Remember, our goal is to have a conversation that challenges the way we think about safety.
This podcast does exactly that.  Listen carefully.   
Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make the podcast go!!

Safety Moment - The Big Short - A movie with Jenga Blocks


Safety Podcast, Safety Differently, New View Safety, Human Performance, Safety, Systems Safety, Operational Excellence, Operational Learning, 

This is a quick discussion of our ability to learn and improve from past events.  To have this discussion we are going to talk about the movie "The Big Short."  This is a movie that uses Jenga blocks to illustrate the complex adaptive. socio-technical failure that was the housing market in the United States.
Why would we care about a movie?  See if you can see the direct comparisons to systems, people, production, money, and power - and ask if we are also managing systems in which our ability to learn and improve is colored by other bias's.    Also, perhaps you look like Brad Pitt.  
Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make this podcast go.  You are the best!

Safety Moment - Safety is a Common Good


Safety Podcast, Safety Training, Human Performance, Organizational Excellence, Safety Moment, Safety...

Safety is a common good.  Safety is created by a group of people to serve all of the members of an organization.  Safety is not a product that is produced.  Safety is not an outcome to be achieved.  Safety is a common value.  Safety benefits all. 
We have (and have tended) to forgotten this idea.  Because of the way we measure and incentivize safety we have forgotten that safety is a common good.
Thanks for making the podcast a success.  You make the podcast go.  You are a part of the fastest growing safety podcast in the world.  Way to go!!!

Safety Moment - Manny Albert - This Is Why?


Safety Podcast, Safety Training, Human Performance, Organizational Excellence, Safety Moment, Safety...

This is my friend Manny Albert.  Manny is from Fortus Alberta and he is great.  Manny had an idea about helping new workers think about lessons that the "old guys" had to learn the hard way.  Manny's idea is to feature potential risks by talking about why they are risks.   These conversations are technical discussion about risk, conditions, and work...and they are about a hundred times more powerful then simply telling a worker the rule.
You will love this safety moment.   Thanks for listening and if you have any ideas or suggestion send em in.   Thanks for making the podcast go.
