TapRooT® Around the World: Cork, Ireland

September 18th, 2018 by

Look into the Two-Day TapRooT® Techniques course in Cork, Ireland, where students and TapRooT® Instructors Thomas Di Giacomo and Chris Vallee gathered at the Imperial Hotel Cork on South Mall. Attendees enjoyed a bit of history along with the TapRooT® course, as guests such as Sir Walter Scott, William Thackeray, Franz Liszt, and Charles Dickens have stayed at the hotel.

In the span of the two-day course, students learned to find and fix the root causes of incidents, accidents, quality problems, precursor events, operational errors, hospital sentinel events, and many other types of problems. Upon course completion, attendees received a certificate and a 90-day subscription to TapRooT® VI, the online software service.

Many thanks to Tom and Chris for capturing and sharing these great pictures of action and insights into the interactive learning during the course!

Analyzing Great Britain’s Workplace Fatality Statistics: Up or Down?

August 29th, 2018 by

Screen Shot 2018 08 01 at 9 32 13 AM

Good news! Workplace deaths in the UK are down. Or are they up? Here’s the stats from the UK HSE

Screen Shot 2018 08 01 at 9 48 21 AM

Note that the 2017-2018 are provisional.

These figures don’t include fatal diseases, fatal accidents on non-rail transport systems (for example, driving), and fatal errors in hospital care that kills patients. The items not included are consistent from year to year.

The total number of deaths in the statistic period covered for 2017-2018 were 144. That’s down from 233 deaths in the 2007-2008 year. But it is up from the 135 deaths in 2016-2017.

They also look at the statistics in several different ways.

COMPARED TO OTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRIES

Screen Shot 2018 08 01 at 10 10 32 AM

HOW DO YOU EVALUATE STATISTICS?

These different graphs and comparisons should get you thinking about how you evaluate your incident/accident statistics. What kinds of stats should you be trending and how will they help you evaluate your performance improvement initiatives.

For example, in the statistics above, how much of the overall decrease in fatalities is due to less work being performed in the most dangerous industries? The fatality rate has been declining in all industries but if the amount of workers in the most hazardous industries has declined significantly, this might make the overall improvement in deaths across all industries look more significant.

Thus, a more significant trend evaluation is within an industry and within a specific work type.

Why look at work types? Let’s look at the deaths in the Communications, business services and finance sector (11 in the 2017-2018 stats). This sector includes building maintenance and landscaping included in renting and leasing activities (7 of the 11 deaths).

How you count and compare things makes a big difference.

STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE

Another question that management often asks is:

“Is that trend significant?”

Let’s look at the total death stats. Are the increases and decreases in the graph in the first figure significant? The UK HSE says:

Screen Shot 2018 08 01 at 10 02 29 AM

In the TapRooT® Advanced Trending Techniques Course, we teach a different method to judge a significant trend. We use Process Behavior Charts.

TRENDING THE GREAT BRITAIN STATS

I used the data I could derive from the graphs on the report (note that I am making estimates on the real numbers from the graphs they provide) to draw three new graphs of fatality data. One from the 1980s. One is from 1994 to 2008. And one is from 2009 to 2018. I think you will find the results interesting.

Let’s start with the 1980’s data…

Screen Shot 2018 08 02 at 4 55 26 PM

Note that in the early 1980’s the data was fairly stable. I used that data from 1981 to 1987 to set some limits. What we can see is that the average number of fatalities was 471. The upper limit (you would expect no more fatalities than this) was 528. The lower limit (you would expect no less fatalities than this) was 413.

In 1988 the fatalities exceeded the upper limit. There were about 605 fatalities. Exceeding the upper limit leads you to believe that something changed. What was it? The Piper Alpha accident. The 167 people who died in a single accident cased the total number of fatalities to be abnormally high that year.

Also, you may note that the fatalities dropped below the lower limit in 1991. To me, it looks as if there had been an improvement in the UK’s fatalities and the system was driving to a new lower average number of fatalities. Can anyone explain this? Was it really a safety improvement or just an new way to count fatalities? Or did the type of work change?

Next, let’s look at the 1994 to 2008 data…

Screen Shot 2018 08 02 at 4 55 53 PM

I used the 1994 to 2007 data to set a new set of limits. The new average number of fatalities was 247. The new upper limit was 322. The new lower limit was 172. The data was fairly flat for 15 years (no data points outside the limits). But in 2009, we had our first point outside the limits low. Again, something was changing. Leave a comment if you have an idea what caused the change.

Now let’s look at 2009 to 2018…

Screen Shot 2018 08 02 at 4 56 18 PM

I used the data from 2009 to 2018 to set a new average and limits. The new average number of fatalities is 154. The upper limit is 187. The new lower limit is 121. In 2010 we were one fatality over the limit. Since this was a new set of limits set on data from 2009-2018, we might just say that the system was not stable at the new set of limits yet. Since then the new fatality numbers have been fairly stable with no significant changes.

Trending using Process Behavior Charts is a very good way of understanding significant trends in safety data.

What I don’t like about this county wide data is that it is an average of data across a whole country. What looks like stable data in a large average may be covering up more detailed trends. For example, mining deaths may be declining while construction deaths are increasing and the one downward trend covers up the other upward trend.

Would you like to learn more about Process Behavior Charts and how to use them to understand your safety, quality, or process and equipment reliability? We teach a course once a year on these advanced trending techniques call Trending for Managing Performance. The next course is March 11-12, 2019 near Houston, TX (Montgomery, TX). It will be held just before the 2019 TapRooT® Summit. If you are interested in trending and performance improvement, you should plan to attend both.

Learn TapRooT® in Seattle

August 20th, 2018 by

Register here for TapRooT® Training on October 24, 2018, in Seattle, Washington: 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training.

Exposure to the 2-Day TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis Training in Seattle will equip you to find and fix the root causes of incidents, accidents, quality problems, precursors, operational errors, hospital sentinel events, and other types of problems. Essential Techniques include: SnapCharT®, Root Cause Tree® & Corrective Action Helper®.

A TapRooT® course is a career booster and can be a professional game changer for you. You’ll be amazed at how much you learn that you can immediately apply! Start your personal and professional growth in Seattle.  

While in the shadow of the iconic, 605-foot-tall Space Needle spire, you will want to get out and about. Below, to route you to points of interest and incredible edibles, we’ve included highlights of this seaport city. Dscover even more gems to explore on our Seattle Pinterest board.

A coastal walk, a satisfying seafood feast, and a connection with Seattle’s quirky culture and its walkable, breathtaking scenery—there’s something in Seattle that you will want to discover.

Experience Seattle

Lean into the beauty that is Puget Sound. Take a cruise or ferry across this immense Pacific Ocean inlet, along its forested shores, and delight in sailing smooth salt waters. Puget Sound has more than 170 islands, some connected by bridges, so there’s much to explore here. Kayaking and boating, hiking and biking, birding, whale-watching, diving and snorkeling, golfing—the Sound is rich in recreative adventures.

Soar over Seattle as Wings Over Washington transports you on a virtual aerial ride of the whole state—from Mount Ranier’s glacier-topped peaks to Olympic National Park’s seashore cliffs.

If you are up for a great view from the heights, overlook Elliott Bay from the Seattle Great Wheel (the West Coast’s tallest ferris wheel). Walk along Waterfront Park for inspiring views. Wander through masterworks along the zigzag path of the Olympic Sculpture Park. 

Take in aircraft and space vehicles plus historical exhibits at the Museum of Flight. Explore flight simulators, get a feel for what pilots experience, see the aviation pavilion and watch a 3D movie, and take a Boeing field tour.

For an artistic must-do in Seattle, visit Chihuly Garden and Glass, the international glass headquarters of Fulbright Fellowship recipient Dale Chihuly, and browse the Glasshouse. 

Taste Seattle

Can you say “pancake heaven”? Take a fork to breakfast at Portage Bay, its four locations serve up hefty portions and, yes, you might want to make a reservation.   

You may not be shopping for seafood, but duck into the very entertaining Pike Place Market that overlooks the Elliott Bay waterfront. It’s among the oldest continuously operated farmers market in America, serving patrons since August 17, 1907. Have dinner here, browse some of the independent shops, or taste-test excellent Northwestern adult beverages. For an eatery inside the market, sit down at Place Pigalle.

Chocoholics will want to investigate the free samples and perhaps a tour of Theo Chocolate Factory, a frontrunner in sustainable and organic cocoa bean practices that bills itself as “a company rooted in chocolate.”

Enjoy gazing over glistening waters of Elliott Bay while dining at Elliott’s Oyster House. Or, choose from among the eateries at Pier 57’s Miners Landing. Try the Salmon Cooker for fast, good, and relatively inexpensive fare. The Cooker serves up Alder-smoked salmon, halibut, and cod, classic fish and chips and clam chowder, as well as fresh oysters, Dungeness crab, shrimp and crab cocktails, and beer. Finish off with homemade ice cream. Try one of the other Miners Landing restaurants—the Crab Pot or Fisherman’s Restaurant & Bar. There’s also Alaskan Sourdough Bakery, which offers breakfast in addition to baked goods. Another eatery to try is AQUA by El Gaucho for both fresh seafood and custom-aged steaks.

For those fond of cider, check out the award-garnering Schilling Cider House. The cider shop offers more than 30 craft ciders and features tastings and classes. 

Of course, we can’t leave Seattle without a coffee encounter since it’s home to the following roasters and servers and then some.

If tea is more your taste, visit among these tea hotspots to find your best hot brew.

The bright red pedestrian Peace Bridge on the park’s west end is noted as a top architectural achievement.

In summer, it’s a playground; during the winter, it’s for downhilling, snowboarding, or cross country—the Canada Olympic Park, or WinSport. Built for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics and a year-round training ground for Olympians, the park offers mountain biking, a bobsled track, a ski-jump zip-line, and a luge.

Venture to 17 Avenue S.W., often called “the Red Mile,” to find bistros, coffee shops, boutiques, and terrific patios for al fresco dining.

Check out an amazing sculpture, “Wonderland,” on Centre Street and 6 Avenue.

The Alamo: This must-see piece of American history was originally known as Mision San Antonio de Valero and represents a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution.

The San Antonio Zoo: In Brackenridge Park, this 35-acre zoo has a collection of over 3,500 animals representing 750 species.

How Do You Get to Brazil?

July 29th, 2018 by

Come to Brazil and learn TapRooT® through one of these courses in the fascinating city of Sao Paulo:

Did you know Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro is one of the 7 Wonders of the World?

  • Related image

Brazil is known for spectacular beaches, the flamboyantly colorful Carnival, and its symbolic statue of Christ the Redeemer at the peak of Corcovado Mountain.

    • Brazil is also home to Sao Paulo, the financial hub of Brazil and where world-renowned Pele played at the legendary stadium Pacaembu.

    • Did you know each Brazilian city has at least one soccer stadium?
  • It’s been called “one of the most beautiful bridges in the world” and “the bridge with the complicated name”—Octavio Frias de Oliveira bridge, or Ponte Estaida, over the Pinheiros River in Sao Paulo is known for its unique architecture. This national landmark is the only bridge in the world with an X-shaped supporting structure, with the cruciform prop supporting two crossing roads of different heights. The bridge’s nighttime lights are spectacular.

    2014-05-23-monkey1955130.jpg

    Fun fact: Brazil has more species of monkeys than anywhere else on earth.

    Se Cathedral and square Free things to do in Sao Paulo

    Sao Paulo See Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral da Se): Statuesque palms line the square, framing this neo-Gothic Roman Catholic Archdiocese. The structure and its Renaissance-styled dome are inspired by the Cathedral of Florence, and more than 800 tons of unique marble were used to construct the building. All the furniture, mosaics, and sculpture were transported by ship from Italy.

    Patio do Colegio, or “Courtyard of the College,” is Sao Paulo’s oldest building and a historical Jesuit church and school. The Pátio do Colégio is home to the Museu Anchieta, which features a fascinating collection of artifacts and records from the 16th century.

    The Julio Prestes Cultural Center: The Julio Prestes Cultural Center, or the Sala Sao Paulo, was once a train station. With its terrific acoustics and a cool, adjustable ceiling, the hall is a copy of Vienna’s Great Musikverein Hall. The Symphony Orchestra of São Paulo (OSESP) performances are some of the most-attended events in the city. A visit here pairs well with some of the other area attractions: Pinacoteca, Museu da Arte Sacra (Sacred Art Museum), and the Parque da Luz

Image result for pedra grande

Pedra Grande: Take a hike on the trail; paraglide the skies over Sao Paulo; take in panoramic views—all from this gem in the middle of the city.

Botanical Garden Of Sao Paulo: With exotic flora, the garden is conservatory of luxuriant landscapes and impressive collections of ornamentals, trees, and groves, as well as many lakes. See the orchid collection; visit the bamboo groves; dine at the great restaurant.

Get a Taste of Brazil

Try what the locals love: Bacalhau is a Brazilian-adopted Portuguese dish containing onions, olives, tomatoes, potatoes, and herbs. Fried fish cakes (bolinho de bacalhau) are consumed with gusto (and often with beer). Tiny tasty rolls (pão de queijo) eaten typically for breakfast—you would call them “cheese bread”—with a cup of coffee with milk (pingado), found in Brazilian bakeries.

Experience the falafels, crispy on the outside and filled with goodness, at Tent of the Nile (Tenda do Nilo).

Taste an African-influenced fritter (acarajé) at Star City

Indulge your sweet tooth at Casa Mathilde.

Have an afternoon or evening drink at Frank Bar.

Dive into a coxinha at Bar do Luiz Fernandes.

Savor feijoada, Brazil’s beans-and-pork stew.

Swing into Caso do Sabor for a tropical chocolate experience, from those who best know cocoa beans and cacao.
