Luck is Not a Safety Strategy
David Sowers, COO, Knowledge Vine
Luck is not a safety strategy. However, if you take a hard look at how work is getting done, you'd be surprised at how much we rely on luck. If our work processes allow for people to decide "this is good enough" then we aren't getting optimal performance; we're getting lucky. In this presentation, we will identify some common gaps in our work processes and safety focus that prevent consistent, optimal performance. You will leave this session with a more complete picture of the factors that encourage accidents and errors; not just another way to blame the worker.
