Event description
A three day HOP/FSI Prevention workshop with Todd Conklin, Corrie Pitzer, Bob Edwards, and Marc Yeston

About this Event

Human and Organizational Performance / Fatality and Serious Incident Prevention

This immersive workshop will explore new ways of thinking about how we can improve the workplace, including a discussion between Corrie and Todd which will introduce a new model for FSI prevention that builds on the shift away from compliance thinking and the draw towards resilience thinking.

HOP is based on understanding how humans perform and how we can build systems that are more error tolerant. For many years we have tried command and control management styles. Or through 'hearts and minds’ campaigns, we have sought to make workers care more and pay more attention so that they won’t make mistakes. It is becoming increasingly obvious to many that those strategies have now plateaued in their effectiveness.

  • What if we are less surprised by human error and failure and instead became more interested in learning?
  • What if we realized that many of the conditions that led to a failure were not identified in our standard hazard analysis tools?
  • What if there was no “root cause” or “chain of events” that led to the failure in some sort of linear fashion?

DAY 1: New Views and HOP Fundamentals

DAY 2: Learning Teams

Day 3: Fatality and Serious Incident Prevention

Todd Conklin holds a Ph.D. in organizational behaviour from the University of New Mexico, and he spent 25 years at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Senior Advisor for Organizational and Safety Culture, working on the Human Performance program for the last 15 years. Author of numerous books and creator of the Pre-Accident Podcast, Conklin speaks to executives and work teams all over the world who are interested in understanding the relationship between the workers in the field and the organization’s systems, processes, and programs. He also brings this knowledge to event investigations for major corporations world-wide. Website Link

Corrie Pitzer is a specialist in culture and leadership, focusing on safety…or more specifically on risk. He is a leading consultant in this field globally. He established and approach called ‘risk competency’, that essentially holds that humans are the most capable, most dynamic risk control we have, and as such should be seen as the strongest link in safety, not the weakest. The company that he founded, SAFEmap International, is today regarded as a leading consultancy in this field, with several international corporations utilizing its expertise. Website Link

Bob has a BS degree in mechanical engineering from Tennessee Technological University and MS degree in Advanced Safety Engineering Management from the University of Alabama Birmingham. He is a leading expert on Human Performance Learning Teams and has led over hundreds of Learning Team sessions for safety and quality events and for operational upsets and challenging design issues. His approach is practical and easy to use. He brings real value to those who do the work and helps managers understand better the complexity and adaptive nature of work. He leads organizations to improve operational discipline through empowerment of employees and forward accountability. Website Link

Marc Yeston has had a thirty-plus year career in public safety, working as a flight paramedic, a federal and state law enforcement officer, a firefighter, a ski patroller, a National Park Service chief ranger, a wilderness guide, an educator and a pilot. The bulk of his career was spent leading emergency and search & rescue operations at the busiest inland search & rescue venue in the country—Grand Canyon National Park.
