Buried Alive: A Survivor’s Story
November 13 – 2:30pm to 3:30pm
In this session, Joe recalls an event from 1983 when he was nearly buried alive. Joe discusses how not focusing on the SafeStart states of rushing, frustration, fatigue, and complacency contributed to him making serious mistakes that almost led him to die on the job. Joe will discuss critical error reduction techniques that will help workers recognize and avoid these types of incidents in their own lives.
SafeStart helps many companies within the construction sector, including Vector Construction who provides concrete repair, restoration and protection services to industrial and civic infrastructure throughout the United States and Canada. Vector Construction increased their near-miss reporting with SafeStart by 600% and reduced the injuries in its divisions by up to 86% with the help of SafeStart.
