During his informative presentation these key points will be explored:

Prevention through design: an APPROACH TO the prevention of SERIOUS INJURY AND FATALITY (SIF)

–Everyday, in America, 13 people go to work and never come home.

–Behavior Based Safety vs. Prevention Through Design

–The same things that kill people are not the same things that hurt people

–The problem with the traditional risk matrix

–Task inventory, “what keeps you up at night?”

–Most organizations overestimate the strength of their controls and underestimate the most likely outcome when those controls fail

–A binary 3-question set to quickly determine if your current level of risk is acceptable

Sound the Alarm Smoke Detector Installation: Escondido area on September 11, 2019

  • Escondido Smoke Detector Installation
    September 11, 2019
    8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Although Americans overwhelmingly believe that smoke alarms can save lives, sadly one out of every 10 people have to sacrifice buying other essentials in order to purchase them. That is why in 2014, the Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign to bring together volunteers and community partners to help develop escape plans and provide free smoke alarms to those who need them the most.

This campaign includes signature Sound the Alarm events, home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events through which the Red Cross and partners have already installed more than 1.1 million free smoke alarms nationwide as well as offered training to implement escape plans. Over the last four years, these preventative measures have helped to save more than 470 lives.

Our San Diego ASSP chapter members have enjoyed their experiences protecting others over the years. Please consider coming out to our next chapter volunteer call for the Escondido area on September 11th 2019.
