Theme:  Improving Corporate Safety Memory

“The farther backward you can look the farther forward you are likely to see.” W. Churchill

Despite our best efforts, results from existing safety programs have plateaued and we continue to suffer construction/pipeline industry fatalities and SIF events. Our corporate safety practices and safety culture remain a driving force in our safety performance and unless we do something differently, we will continue to experience similar SIF events and injuries.
We need to discuss how to overcome our own company’s culture and “Safety Memory.”

Corporate safety memory and safety performance is impacted by:
– Investigations that focus on “why” and not the context leading to the event. We are not learning and are destined to repeat,
– Not clearly understanding the risk and energy of the hazard,
– Not building adequate capacity by integrating preventative (direct) and mitigative (indirect) controls, and
– Understanding Human Performance Principles (HPP) including humans are fallible.

This workshop will target these issues by sharing the latest learnings from industry subject matter experts, open dialog with the participants and work groups to understand our critical pipeline industry SIF energy sources and what controls can be used to prevent SIF injuries.

We will discuss how organizations ‘learn’ from past incidents/event and how we can improve our safety culture and reduce SIF events.

Attendees will discuss, share, develop and take away best practices that can add immediate value to your organization.
