Presentation Description & Topics
Option 1: Creating a Safety Culture Based on Transparency
Learning from near misses
A near miss is an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage but had the potential to do so. Only a fortunate break in the chain of events prevented such an unfortunate outcome. Most employees are not required to report these close calls as no disruption or loss in the form of injuries or property damage occurred. Thus, many opportunities to prevent such accidents in the future are lost.
In this presentation Shawn will show you how to leverage near misses and how they helped shape the risk management plan that led to saving a life deep in India’s Himalayan Mountains.
- Maximizing near-miss incidences
- Utilizing transparency in the development of a safety culture
- Implementing feedforward as an effective incident debriefing technique

His stories illustrate how being in a leadership position taught him valuable team building lessons, which are just as relevant in the harsh, life-and-death environment of the Himalayas as they are in a fast-paced and challenging corporate world.
