Our discussion on choice continues...

Really choices are little shortcuts that workers make while they perform work in real-time, while working with real risks and hazards.  This we know to be true.

Thanks for being a part of this conversation around choice.  I am interested in what you are thinking and doing around the notion that, "You cannot NOT expect your workforce to make choices."

You rely on worker's making choices everyday.   Think about that.

Still looking for a sponsor.   Thanks for listening to the podcast.  It is pretty fun hanging out with you.

Barbara Cristinziani has her very own podcast in her company.  Well, she is a part of the podcast that is shared by the entire organization, but she hosted the very first episode ever!  Oops!  Just learned that this is the second episode of the podcast for this organization...that is close to the first...isn't it?

Guess who the guest was for this podcast?  Yes, the guest is a fellow podcaster.  That guest was Todd Conklin and the discussion was one of safety, reliability, and an organization that has really grown towards becomming more and more reliable.

This episode is a little glimpse in to how other organization's are doing some of this important work.

Safety Moment - Choice Assumes Knowledge

If you think workers have choice, the illusion of free-will, then you have to also think that the worker fully understands the choice about to be made.

You cannot tell me a worker made a choice towards getting hurt.  

You must tell me the worker purposefully did not choose all the other ways to do the work that would not have caused the failure...can you do that?

This gets a bit complicated.  Listen and see what you think.  I am so dang glad you are here!

Meet the always energetic Toby Brown.  He has a story to tell about his journey in to the world of safety.   He kind of dropped in to this world...rather hard, and now he is telling his story to companies around the country.   Perhaps he should tell you his story as well.

Toby is this kind of person who picks you up at the airport with a sign that reads, "Tater Tots!"   He is very thoughtful and careful in the way he thinks about his profession and the risks that are always present in this type of work.

Safety Moment - Are Accidents a Failure of Imagination?

We are good a prevention.

We are not so good at prediction.

Can we ever possibly know all the things that could happen wrong in a system that mostly happens right?  It is a good question, one that needs some time and thinking by YOU.

This podcast is the beginning of a long-term discussion about prevention and prediction.   Get ready.  Fasten your psycholicial seat belts.... we are going for a ride.

Thanks for listening.  Still looking for a sponsor.  Any comments?   Ping Toddconklin@gmail.com.  Thanks for being you - don't stop being you - you are the best you there is...   Gracias.

This month has not been the best month for passangers on US Airlines, in fact this month has been about as bad as a the flying public could imagine.   A 69 year old man was dragged off a plane, against his will, on video for the entire world to see.

What could possibly be going on?  How can these things be happening?

This episode challanges the traditional ways that the world wants to frame these problems.  Do we fix the people of do we fix the system?   

Thanks for being a part of the podcast.  If you are interested in sponsoring this podcast - give me a call - we can hook you up.   Tell your friends and keep listening.  We need you.  Thanks!

Its not a new program!

I swear...It is not a new program!

And yet if it looks like, smells like, acts like, and feels like a new program - it is a new program.  This is struggle for folks all around the world.  We don't need a new program - we just need to think about our current programs differently.

That is the entire point.  It is not a new program.  It is a new way to think about all of your systems and programs that currently exist in your organization.  

Thanks for being a part of the podcast.   You are the best.
