Last week we discussed Safety and AI with Ron Gantt. This week on Client Side Chats we provide examples of AI issues from a safety perspective and how we may address them as safety professionals with Ron. We discuss shared experiences where AI has gone wrong, resulting in potential risks, some of them catastrophic. And we discuss where AI has gone right including how it involves the human with plenty of time to adjust to impending risks. Ron is HSE Director – Americas at Yondr Group. PhD Candidate in Cognitive Systems Engineering at The Ohio State University.
Skipper Kendrick, CSP, FASSP, President, Kendrick Global Enterprises, LLC, joins us for part 1 of a 3-part series about “When Are We Going to Learn.” In this first part, Skipper discusses and challenges the idea that compliance is equal to safety. Skipper shares examples that question that notion and, while compliance is important and not going away, it is not the magic bullet that would put you into the top-tier safety performance. Skipper leaves us in this part with two things needed for safety training and about “safety first”: listen to hear what he really thinks.
