Be A Leader in Safety
Join Us in Celebrating Safety Week 2016
Every year, more than 80,000 workers suffer an injury on construction job sites across the U.S. Any one incident is too many. Life is too precious to not make safety a continuous focus.
Being safe every day on every job site crosses competitive boundaries. Construction companies have come together to celebrate the third annual Construction Safety Week. This Kick Off Event is an opportunity to increase awareness of the importance of being committed to safety every day and to inspire all of us to share best practices and work together to strengthen our industry's safety culture.
Human Performance Improvement Introduction -
How Would You Know
You're Not As Good As You Think You Are?
Bill Rigot, an accomplished engineer and veteran of the Navy's Nuclear Power Program, serves industry as an expert in human performance improvement and High Reliability Organizations. To kick off SafetyWeek 2016, Bill will discuss human errors as symptoms of problems deeper within organizations that can lead to significant events that leave companies reeling after major disasters.
Participants will conduct exercises that will get them to think differently about how they manage risks. Case studies will be discussed, including the Fukushima multiple reactor meltdown, the crane accident in Mecca in 2015, and the Triborough crane accident this year, to look beyond the front line worker errors that trigger events, and into the way companies manage risk in a complex, resource constrained environment. Bill will introduce a tool to think about how workers adapt to assure success while hazards build up within a project until an accident happens accidentally. Finally, participants will be introduced to new tools to look at failures differently, to be able to learn and improve from them, and learn how to "see around corners".
Star Rentals, the meeting sponsor will provide a fall protection demonstration immediately following the meeting.
