Joe Estey presents “What’s on your Mind?” at Safety Fest TN!

Thank you Joe!

This special session headlined by Joe Estey, Performance Improvement Specialist with Lucas Engineering and Management Solutions will be part of the Safety Forum opening at Safety Fest TN on Tuesday, September 13th. Joe will ask…

“What’s on Your Mind?”

The Institute for Nuclear Power Operations Anatomy of an Event illustrates the life cycle of error, originating from a latent organizational weakness through the event itself. Included in this life cycle are flawed defenses, error precursors and an individual’s initiating action. Too often after the event, organizations view the actions and decisions of this individual through the lens of backward accountability, reinforcing a mistaken notion of a single point of failure. Predisposed to search for the malefactor, contaminated by a cultural history of viewing accidents through a ‘gotcha’ mindset, corrective actions become a cycle of misdiagnoses and faulty prescriptions. This interactive workshop will introduce participants to common mental biases associated with event-triggering actions and provide specific techniques and countermeasures for improving personal error detection and recovery.

Look it!, as on old dear friend of mine once said, ya’ can’t eliminate mistakes but you can plan for ’em! If you’ve never experienced Joe in person, go, you owe it to yourself and those that depend on you! He has an uncanny ability to illuminate both organizational and personal weaknesses and provide actionable skills to mitigate those frailties! “ J.J. Rochelle
