Learning from Failure
I need an explanation for this Environmental Science question to help me study.
Assume you are a new safety and health manager for a mechanical contractor. Your predecessor was recently terminated due to the fact that he was unable to effectively reduce injury experience, because of uncontrolled safety issues prevalent at job sites and because the elevated experience modification factor is now hampering the company’s ability to successfully bid and receive contracts. Based on your initial audits and work, you have decided that you want to enhance the learning and reporting culture within the organization.
You have a meeting with the Vice President of Construction Operations. Provide a detailed and convincing statement that you will discuss with her, as to how a learning culture, which instills the importance of learning from failures, and how a reporting culture can enhance workplace safety and health. Your statement should be succinct, but detailed and convincing. An APA formatted paper is not necessary; however, do cite and give reference to any resources utilized.
