Upcoming Webinars:

  • Principles of HOP Series, February - May 2024 with Linda Bruce and Matthew Kanneberg, West Rock
    • HOP Intro & Principle 1 People Make Mistakes, February 19th, 2024 at 11 am EST
      • Webinar One: People Make Mistakes
        The first principle is an acceptance that people are human, and being human means we make mistakes. While that’s not to say that error is desirable, it is simply acknowledging that error is normal. We forget things. We are sometimes inattentive. We’re human – so rather than focusing on trying to stop error, or trying to achieve zero errors, we accept the fact that people make mistakes and therefore we need to build systems that allow for us to make errors in in a safe way. Ultimately, we can be one error away from a serious incident or accident – which is a system problem, not a human problem.

    • HOP Principle 2 Blame Fixes Nothing, March 11, 2024 at 11 am EST
      • Webinar Two: Blame Fixes Nothing
        When things go wrong, humans have a tendency to want simple explanations. We want someone to blame. It’s a normal, human response – but it’s not very helpful. In fact, in the long term, blame generally does much more harm than good. HOP recognizes that those involved in accidents and incidents have an important role to play in the process of restoring and learning to create better outcomes for others. By taking blame away, we enable better learning.

    • HOP  Principle 3 Learning & Improving is Vital, April 8th, 2024 11 am EST
      • Webinar Three: Context Drives Behavior
        When we look at the influences in a system, we get a lot more curious. Why do people behave the way they do? In HOP, we seek to understand the organizational influences and why people make the decisions they do. We generally know with a great degree of confidence that people make decisions that are locally rational. They don’t go to work to hurt themselves, or to hurt other people. They don’t go to work to ruin their supervisor’s day or damage equipment. When you try to empathize and be curious, you can understand why they did what they did because it probably made sense at the time.
        If we blame the person and send them away, we don’t learn what it was that made them do what they did and therefore we leave the same conditions in place for someone else to make the same mistake or error in the future.

    • HOP Principles 4 & 5 Learning is Vital and Response Matters, May 13th, 2024 at 11am EST
      • Webinar Four: Learning is Vital and Response Matters
        The fourth principle of HOP is about being a lot more interested in learning than traditional safety has allowed for. Learning is vital – after an event, we need to understand the conditions in which work was happening in order to learn and improve. We’ve worked with countless organizations that produce the same corrective actions over and over again, the same policies, and the same reliance on memos, procedures and retraining. These activities aren’t moving the dial in terms of actually improving organizational performance. Yes, we need to be learning when things go wrong – but even more importantly, we need to learn from normal work and everyday actions. It’s there that we really can start to tap into the creativity, innovation and capacity which already exists in the organization. Finally, the fifth principle of HOP is Response Matters. We use the term ‘response’ deliberately because oftentimes we find that what we do in a situation is react – and reacting is very different to responding. If managers and leaders and everyone in an organization is really working on managing their response to failure, it creates a far better environment where we can learn and develop and grow. Making knee-jerk reactions often involves blame or judgment that gets in the way of valuable learning opportunities. If we can manage that response, organizations will be far more effective across all these different areas.

Getting Safety Right - First Prevent Serious and Fatal Injuries

November 7th 2019 at11:00 am EST
Companies in every industry implement many initiatives to improve safety results. Too often, those initiatives are aimed at the most frequent injuries and miss the injuries that are most severe – serious injuries & fatalities (SIF’s). Join an informative webinar to learn about how the Henrich Triangle from the 1930’s is no longer an accurate predictor of injury severity. Learn how to evaluate your SIF Prevention maturity and what you can do to improve your process. Management’s credibility hinges largely on what your employees perceive as the organization’s commitment to SIF prevention.
