Leading Indicators: It's The Little Things
Concise Length 13 min
Jeff "Odie" Espenship is a United States Air Force A-1 Warthog fighter pilot and also an international airline pilot. As a flight leader, he knows what it takes to operate safely in a high-risk and sometimes dangerous work environment. In this dynamic presentation, Odie discusses his experiences involving shortcuts and complacency as a pilot and how they relate to common workplace situations. Because these leading indicators tend to snowball and contribute to accidents, he stresses that employees must always be aware of the "little things" and take action when they tempt us or our co-workers to perform unsafe acts.
