Fatality Blind Spots: How to Identify Human and Organizational Performance Issues and Minimize the Risk of Serious Injuries and Deaths - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to assess whether your organization has fatality risk blind spots—and where and how to address critical human and organizational performance issues to minimize the risk of serious injuries or deaths.

True or false:
If you reduce the risk of the most common injuries, you also reduce the risk of all injury types, including serious injuries and fatalities. Additionally, if you reduce your total recordable incident rate (TRIR), you’re also reducing your risk of a serious injury or fatality.

If you answered “true,” to one or both of these questions, you likely have a fatality risk blind spot. Safety is not the absence of accidents, but rather, how your organization defends against them.

The risk factors for serious injuries and fatalities are different from the risk factors for more common, less severe injuries—yet many companies are operating under the incorrect assumption that a single risk assessment process will successfully target both. For example, in more dramatic cases, such as in the BP Deepwater oil disaster, organizations that have “exemplary” safety statistics, suddenly have a catastrophic or multi-fatality event—but they are “safe” companies. What went wrong?

To prevent these rare but serious incidents, organizations need to learn approaches for managing their unique risks differently. Employee involvement, good observation programs, and strong safety leadership are the tools needed to find a blind spot and correct it before someone gets hurt.

Use this in-depth on-demand webinar when David Eherts, Ph.D, CIH, Vice President of Global EHS at Allergan, will reveal best practices for uncovering and addressing fatality risk blind spots.

You’ll learn:

  • How to define “safety” and “good observations,” which correlate to injury rates
  • Whether getting to “zero” is the right target
  • How the Heinrich Pyramid works and how incident rates factor into fatality risks
  • What safety managers can do to tackle “The Iceberg of Ignorance” that can contribute to fatality risks in the workplace
  • The role of human and organizational performance (HOP) in building error-tolerant defenses—and 6 key principles of HOP every safety manager needs to know
  • The differences among fragile, stable, and resilient safety systems
  • How HOP theory has influenced EHS at Allergan—and how to put the same techniques into practice at your company to lower the risk of fatal injuries in the workplace
  • The role of safety walk-throughs, rules, pre-/post-shift meetings, EHS communication and alerts, and risk maps
