Free Webinar: How Conservative Decision-Making Changes Safety Culture

conservative decision-making

Improve safety culture at your facility by improving your ability to spot conservative decision-making (or non-conservative decision-making).

Register now for our February 7, 2022 webinar, and learn how conservative decision-making changes safety culture.

Workers are often blamed for making non-conservative decisions to get the work done, but we tend to look the other way when senior leaders encourage or make non-conservative decisions. This is unfortunate because our leaders set the tone for decisions made throughout the organization. Your management’s philosophy can protect your people, the environment, and your companies reputation.

After receiving a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, Mark served in Admiral Rickover’s Nuclear Navy where he received NAVSEA 08’s Engineer Certification; learned Rickover’s equipment reliability best practices, and participated in Rickover’s culture of operational excellence. Mark then studied Human Factors at the University of Illinois while completing a Masters Degree in Nuclear Engineering.

Mark brought this knowledge of operation excellence, human factors, and equipment reliability to the development of effective root cause analysis practices while working at Du Pont. His work there led him to start System Improvements and bring advanced root cause analysis concepts to the world.
