Some of you may be aware that there is a blog site online entitled Safety Differently. Recently, management of the site was taken over by Ron Gantt of SCM and Reflect Consulting. In a posting from last week, Ron explained the purpose of the site and provided links to some resources that we believe are beneficial for us all. We are passing the information on to you.
From Safety Differently, posted October 7, 2018:
The intention of this site is to provide space for people to share their thoughts, ideas, and practices about doing Safety Differently. My main criteria I look for in content is that it is something about Safety Differently. I don’t even have to agree with the approach or content of the post, as long as it is something within that space. My hope is that this site provides space for the community to wrestle with Safety Differently and that a set of ideas and practices emerge from those conversations.
To that end, I need your help. First, it is really important that you get involved. Comment on posts. Provide your perspective. Disagree (respectfully). Challenge. Clarify. Add. Collaborate. The more passive your involvement in the site, the worse the experience will be for yourself and others.
Further, if you have ideas for posts you’d like to share with the community feel free to get in touch with me. The more contributions we have from a diverse set of perspectives, the better. You can email me using the form at the bottom of this post or in the comments below.
I also want to draw your attention to a few new resources we have available for you.
First, Sidney Dekker has released another documentary entitled “The Complexity of Failure”. You can view it on our video gallery (link
) or simply click this link
Second, we’ve also uploaded Ivan Pupulidy’s TedX talk on learning reviews to the video gallery, and you can view that by clicking this link
Finally, I’ve uploaded a paper I wrote a couple years ago for a conference where I lay out my perspective on Safety Differently. You can access that through this link. click here
If you have any resources you’d like to share with the community reach out to me here using the contact form below.
Thanks for your contributions to helping people do Safety Differently.
One final note:
Here is a link to the contact form on the blog site that Ron references.
As a community of safety professionals, we would like to offer some links to help our neighbors and friends that have lost homes, businesses and loved ones during Hurricane Michael. If you’d like to donate to help, here are some suggestions:
