Let it be known that many writers are basically big snoops. We eavesdrop on juicy conversations we overhear in public, and some of us aren’t above writing those conversations down. Earlier this week at the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Safety 2013 conference in Las Vegas, I overheard a few interesting snippets of conversations – and I’m not talking about the guy strolling through a casino telling his friend that his life “was going OK, but I might be getting a divorce.” Instead, I heard a few disturbing admissions about a safety topic near and dear to me: distracted driving. The first came from a certified safety professional who […]

As the host city of the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) Safety 2013 conference, Las Vegas was the perfect backdrop for a presentation on predicting the probability of a workplace accident. Victor J. Sordillo, PE, CSP, a VP at Chubb Group of Insurances Companies, discussed the human factors that go into the probability of a workplace accident. He called numbers “often misleading” and acknowledged that determining probability is not always intuitive. “In safety, if probability was perfect, we could predict [for example] that one in 500 people would experience a back injury on the job,” he said. “But what you have in your operations is you have all the […]
