Friday Joke – Somebody on that snowplow couldn’t believe the opportunity … Let’s get on the news!

Watch this and laugh. It was sent by a TapRooT(R) User as an example of a “loss of situational awareness.”

Was this a near-miss or a slight hit?

What were the Safeguards that failed that allowed this funny incident to happen?

Do some quick root cause analysis … What were the root causes of the failure of the Safeguards that you believe should have been in place?

What Safeguards kept this accident from being worse? (What if there had been a large stone or an old muffler in the snow?)

What should the DOT do to avoid these incidents? Are your ideas based on root cause analysis or Safeguard Analysis?

What should the news crew do to avoid these incidents? Are your ideas based on root cause analysis or Safeguard Analysis?

Sometimes what seems like a funny mistake is really an opportunity for learning.

PS: If you have a good joke or funny video that relates to accident investigation, root cause analysis, or performance improvement – or if its just real funny and doesn’t relate to anything – send it to me via the info@taproot.com e-mail address.

Thanks

Mark
