The Final Frontier: Zero Fatalities "To Boldly Go Where No One Has Gone Before..."
Despite our advances in technology and analytics in safety, there is one thing that is still elusive and unknown to us: where and when will the next fatality happen?

The holy grail is to predict the next fatality, but that would be psychic, not science. Or would it? This session will take you where no one has gone before - to boldly offer an 'early warning system' of latent triggers that precede fatal accidents. It is called the 'Co-efficient of Chronic Unease'.

Secondly, what would it take to prevent the next fatality, if our warning system missed it? In this case, the most potent capability in fatality prevention ever to exist will be revealed - and it is right in front of our eyes!

Motivational Keynote
8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

The Day We Will Remember
Ricky will tell about the workplace accident that almost took his life 24 years ago and how it could have affected his family if he had died that day. He will also tell 4 more stories from the perspective of friend, father, husband, brother, coworker, supervisor and department manager of the things that have affected his circle. Some good things and some not so good. But in each story is a message with a lesson in it for each of us. Each story will have a twist in it that will keep the audience engaged and help them remember the lessons to take back to work and home with them. We make many decisions every day of our lives and all it takes is one bad decision to unfortunately have “The Day We Will Remember”. Ricky’s presentation will have you thinking deeply about those decisions and how they could affect your circle of coworkers, friends and family.
