Psychological Safety (Intermediate)  Dr. John Austin, Reaching Results.

How can someone failing to share their ideas lead to failure, injury, fatality, or disaster?
They can, and it happens every day. History is replete with examples of how this has happened.
We see people fail to say what’s on their mind at a critical time for their team or organization, and it costs lives…not to mention billions of dollars or the next new product.
Even the most well intended leaders miss these critical conversations and the result is not only
disastrous, but often deadly. Behavioral scientist Dr. John Austin reveals the conversations you are not having and how to reduce injuries and accidents literally overnight with simple changes to the way communication happens in your organization.

Evaluating Your Emergency Disaster Plan (Intermediate)  Rich Mahaney, Mahaney Loss Control Services.

Every facility and business should have a disaster plan for what to do if something happens and what to do for a recovery after “it” happens. These plans need to be tested (or exercised”) on a regular schedule for different scenarios. Exercises need to focus on several objectives, not everything a person can think of to measure. Exercises need to test what the plans and procedures spell out for actions to take or are recommended. Exercises need to test actions and decision making.
Exercises need to test use of a command post and an incident command system. Exercises may include
people getting hurt, the loss of facilities, the inability to continue business and manufacturing and/or
sales. Impact on staffing, the loss of utilities and communications. The exercise needs to follow standard
planning, activities, evaluation, written evaluation, role players, evaluators that look for specific items and actions.
