What is the Fastest Way to Get Fired After an Accident?
If you work at a blame-oriented company, the answer to the question above is easy. Just admit that you were the last person to touch whatever went wrong that caused the accident.
Or, if you are in the Navy, all you have to do is to be the CO of a ship that has a collision at sea.
A slower way to get fired is to be the Plant Manager or Division Manager who doesn’t have good answers when he or she is asked by the corporate VP, “What are you going to do to prevent a repeat accident in the future?” Actually, they probably don’t fire someone this high in the organization. Rather, they transfer them to a staff job where they are never heard from again.
What is the best way to avoid being fired? Don’t have the accident in the first place! Instead, have a proactive improvement program that identifies problems, finds their root causes, and effectively fixes them before an accident happens.
