PAPod 118 - Sidney Dekker and The End of Heaven

15Apr

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

This episode of the PreAccident Podcast is a special conversation with Sidney Dekker on his latest book, "The End of Heaven."  Sid digs deeply through the world of complexity, cause, and human beingness.  

In this unique book, Sidney Dekker tackles a largely unexplored dilemma. Our scientific age has equipped us ever better to explain why things go wrong. But this increasing sophistication actually makes it harder to explain why we suffer. Accidents and disasters have become technical problems without inherent purpose. When told of a disaster, we easily feel lost in the steely emptiness of technical languages of engineering or medicine. Or, in our drive to pinpoint the source of suffering, we succumb to the hunt for a scapegoat, possibly inflicting even greater suffering on others around us. How can we satisfactorily deal with suffering when the disaster that caused it is no more than the dispassionate sum of utterly mundane, imperfect human decisions and technical failures? Broad in its historical sweep and ambition, The End of Heaven is also Dekker's most personal book to date.

This is a conversation that moves from cause to the Protestant work ethic and back.  I love this episode and you will too.

We also present an open opportunity to be a part of an open discussion that will be held in "The Bay Area" on June 9th, 2017.  SCM Safety is presenting "Safety Differently with Sidney Dekker and Todd Conklin."  You are welcome and invited to attend.   

Thanks for listening to the PodCast!  You make every single episode a success.  This episode is another great success because of you - take tomorrow off.

Safety Moment - Google’s Team Excellence Traits

12Apr

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

I saw this article and became pretty darn interested in what these team traits could be.  I was impresed and not very surprised by the outcome - pretty much what you think you are going to see.   Here's what caught my attention - can we seek to become these things as an outcome to be achieved - or are these traits the outcome of a team that creates these traits?   Pretty much the old chicken and the egg delima, don't you think?

Listen to this long moment - the longest one on record - and see what you think?  

Thanks for listening to the podcast.  You make the show go.  This is the biggest safety podcast on the web.  You did that.... and for that I say thank a million.

PAPod 117 - An After Action Review on Event Learning - A conversation with Bob and Todd

8Apr

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

This episode of the Podcast is an open discussion about the recent Learning Workshop that was held in Las Vegas.  This conversation is our after action discussion about what worked, what needs work, and where we can improve what we do and understand.  It sounds really boring and awful, but this conversation is kind of interesting.

When we think about safety differently - we are forced to think about changing the way we do our work.  Learning how to learn is a very valuable skill - and the chance to practice that learning is worth its weight in gold.

Thanks for listening to the Podcast.  You have helped make this podcast the most listen to and best safety podcasts on the web.   Thanks for listening and tell your friends.   YOu make the podcast go!

Safety Moment - The Next Generation of Safety Thinkers are NOT Thinking about Safety at All

4Apr

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

Have you thought about the fact that the more we think about new safety, the more we think about safety differently, the less we think about traditional safety as we once knew traditional safety.  It is plain to see that the next big thinkers around safety are not really thinking about safety at all.  These thinkers are thinking about lots of other things that really surround the work of stable and mature system performing with dependability...in a way this is the most exiting part of the new view journey.

Thanks for listening.  You have made this podcast the best safety podcast in the world.  I can't thank you enough. Remember everything you do makes our systems better and better
