  • Casper, I am very pleased to see that industries and NGOs are adopting transparency and internal failure review practices similar to what has long been common practice in highly sensitive safety industries, such as aviation, oil & gas and nuclear power. Contrary to what many people think, high risk industries use highly advanced “failure” reviews and feedback or learning loops to improve their own understanding of what led up to very minor (or even just potential) incidents or serious accidents. The one safety industry that is way behind this “learning” curve is the biggest of all – the medical sector. Hospitals are notorious for their “failures” and have much to do to catch up with the advanced safety industries.

    That AID has failed has been understood by many for years, but I must admit it is the first time that I see anyone express this so poignantly as this guy.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Alexander ter Kuile
