That is a question, not a statement.

This month a young climber, let's call him Alex (cause that is his name) climbed El Capitan, 3000 and some change feet above sea level - solo and without safety equipment.

Thomas Kuhn is one of my favorites.  I bet you knew that if you listen to the podcast.   This discussion is about the need to replace an old idea with a new idea.

You must replace old thinking with new thinking.  You cannot leave a vacuum of thought.

Ivan Pupilidy and I sat down for a conversation with one of the most interesting people I have talked to in a long while.  Meet Roger Strickland, Australian, Fire Fighter, Trainer, Leader, Listener, Story-teller, and most importantly - a great learner of how things normally go right in order to understand how things sometimes go wrong (Thanks Erik).

This conversation, the first of what I hope is many, talks about wildland fire and learning.  What a great topic.  We can all learn from such great conversations.  Sit back and enjoy how much you will gleen from this little talk.

See what you think about this episode.   I like the idea that we seem to be fixated on our headwinds and seem to ignore our tailwinds.  What makes us successful?  That is a good point of both thinking and talking.

Thanks for all you do for this podcast.  You make the show go!!

Welcome to this Special Announcement Episode of the PreAccident Podcast.  This is a short announcement, by request, to tell you that Todd's new book has dropped and is available for purchase.  I try to do this a sparingly as I possibly can.

Purchase this book here:  https://www.amazon.com/Workplace-Fatalities-Discussion-Fatality-Reduction/dp/1546979654/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496684431&sr=8-1&keywords=todd+conklin

Why is it that very safe organizations continue to have problems with fatalites and serious events?

What lies behind these fatalities? Do they really happen because some people don’t wear their personal protective equipment; that some don’t wear gloves when rules say they should? WorkPlace Fatalities: Failure to Predict is the first book for the industry professional that speaks directly to this important challenge: If your organization is so safe - Why do we have fatal and serious events?

Ever have one of those days that just get away from you?  This is my excuse for this episode.  I am so excited by this story that I just could not stop.  This is the best story.

Today we discuss not a pair of gloves - although that is the very reason we are having this conversation - today we discuss a shift in thinking about a problem that has existed for a long, long time:   Worker hands and rotating tools.  

You will love the outcome of this story.  More importantly, you will love the context of this story. 

Thanks for making the podcast one of the best in the industry.  You have made this podcast community grow and trive.  Keep building community.  Keep building community.  Keep building community.
