Complacency=Catastrophe (Basic-Advanced) Keith Jenks, Owner, Keiths Korner Safety.

On July 12, 2013, Keith Jenks was involved in a near death 480v electrical explosion.  He will share his story of how the role of complacency at work and at home can have tragic results.  Keith’s brutal honesty about his attitude prior to the accident will be very moving.  During this presentation he holds nothing back from the reality of the accident.  Keith will draw a picture of a life of hard work and dedication to getting the job done.  It is with his faith, family and the support of many people he has returned to work despite having a permanent obstacle.  The presentation will contain graphic images of Keith while he was in the ICU that will not be appropriate for everyone.

11:30 am

Re-Train.  Re-Enforce.  Re-Communicate.  Common solutions, but do they help? (Intermediate) Chris Eckert, President, Sologic.

Commonly, solutions to problems are limited to Re-Train, Re-Enforce, and Re-Communicate.  Yet, experience shows these activities rarely make any difference, let along long-standing improvement.  Break-through solutions that yield lasting results occur when teams follow a structured approach to problem solving that includes identification of the cause and effect relationships.

This presentation will illustrate the key steps involved for discovery of innovative, effective solutions for any type of problem.

1:45 pm

Accident in Utilities; Is it Human Error or Something Else? (Intermediate) Oscar Rodriguez-Franco, CIH.
