Shout from the rooftop

ByTodd Conklin

The workers feel like the chances of the failure happening belong to the poor worker that had the event. There is a 100% chance that the worker who had the event will have the event. Once workers know that their ideas and observations matter, are heard, and are unique and accurate, the worker will take his or her responsibility to look for upset conditions much more seriously. The process of understanding and defining conditions is much simpler and much better than predicting the future of safety professionals' organization based upon the many ways a worker can die. Build fluency around the language of the extent of conditions into the vocabulary of safety professionals' organization. Help safety professionals' team feel empowered enough to think about other areas of the facility where the same conditions may or do exist. The secret is in the identification of conditions over consequences.
