Safety Moment - Cardinal Rules are not so Cardinal


Safety Podcast, Safety Program, Investigations, Human Performance, Safety Differently, Operational Excellence

What could be better then 8 or 9 or 6 very clear rules that must be followed?  It is brilliant!  It is so simple!  It makes safety easy for the workers - simple never break one of these rules and you will never have an accident.

Who the hell made that up?  That is not only naive and simple, but I think it actually makes management of reliable organizations difficult and unsuccessful.   

Perhaps we could use that same list to manage controls?  Now that makes more sense.   

Thanks for listening.   You make the podcast go.  Keep it up and tell your friends.
