Speaker: Corrie Pitzer

Session Description

The typical focus in safety is that the human being is our weakest link in safety, that they are often blamed as the ones who have accidents, make mistakes, or poor choices. This flies in the face of the true nature of humans: skilled and naturally able to deal with risks, incredible brain power, and with a capability to deal with many risks in the work environment. In this presentation, you will see the “power of front-line people” and how we prevent many more accidents than what we make.
