How to Improve Safety and Human Performance with a Learning-Based Approach to Errors

  •  January 23, 2023
     5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

For over 40 years, safety-focused teams in the military, emergency fire & rescue services and other high-hazard industries have used After Action Reviews to save lives, build trust, and share expertise. In the first hour of this workshop, you’ll learn how to lead high-quality After Action Reviews (AARs) for your team. Watch this 60-second video — In the 2nd hour of our workshop, ask Jake your toughest questions like, “Why don’t people just follow procedures?” or “How can I get my people more engaged with safety?” In preparation for this engagement, email one question to by Friday 20 January.

Many companies try to eliminate errors, but can’t. Dr. Jake shows leaders in high-hazard industries why errors are signals, not failures, and how to address the deeper problem, so that everyone can work more reliably and safely. Jake specializes in making Human Performance / HOP practical. He has worked with: the US Department of Energy, Chevron, Energy Safety Canada, ASSP, and dozens of private clients who prefer to remain anonymous. Dr. Jake has a decade of experience in Safety for electric utilities, and served as a firefighter, an EMT and a military paratrooper. To learn more, visit his website
