Summit Report – Afternoon

I just came from the Investigations Best Practices Session (Ken Scott/CJ Blacklund/Dennis Ward). Great info. I can’t cover all the good info in a short note so I will just pass along one “nugget”…

Dennis Ward talked about the value of looking at common causal factors from multiple accidents rather than looking at one accident at a time. The result? Multiple improvements to the FAA’s process for certifying pilots. A really impressive story that Dennis says he will be back to report on the results as private pilot safety improves.

I’m now sitting in the Certified TapRooT(R) Instructor Workshop listening to Linda Unger share ideas to improve TapRooT(R) Training conducted by instructors at licensed TapRooT(R) User sites. There is a new revision to the 2-Day TapRooT(R) Incident Investigation and Root Cause Analysis Course.

One of the ideas is a SMARTER Corrective Action form to help people develop … SMARTER Corrective Actions!

After this I’m off to the Keynote Talk … “Better Communications to Improve Safety, Quality, Productivity, & Morale!” Vincent Phipps of TLC is an excellent presenter and I’m looking forward to his talk.

I’ll try to get some brief videos of sessions and some pictures tonight – NO GUARANTEE – because we also have a reception that starts at 5 PM and goes until …

Hope that next year you can be here.
