Use Your Seatbelt

A TapRooT(R) User sent me this video. The original source is unknown.

Two points to consider…

1. Always wear your seatbelt. (Good safety meeting video to emphasize importance of being belted up!)

2. Was fatigue involved in this accident?

If you are interested in investigating fatigue as a potential cause of accidents, attend the TapRooT(R) Summit.

Bill Sirois, Senior VP at Circadian Technologies, will discuss investigation strategies at his talk, “Analyzing Fatigue as a Cause of Errors.”

This talk is a part of the following Summit Tracks:

– Advanced Investigation Skills

– Human Performance & Behavior Change

– Medical Error Reduction Best Practices

– Certified TapRooT(R) Instructor Best Practices

I think that fatigue is one of the most under-investigated causes of accidents – especially in industries with excessive overtime and extreme hours (for example, healthcare) and boring tasks (for example, cross-country driving in light traffic).
