Jeff "Odie" Espenship is an Air Force A-10 Warthog fighter pilot and also an international airline pilot. As a flight leader, he knows what it takes to operate safely in a high-risk and sometimes dangerous work environment. In this dynamic presentation, Odie discusses his experiences involving shortcuts, snap decisions and complacency as a pilot and how they relate to common workplace situations.
Because these leading indicators tend to snowball and contribute to accidents, he stresses that employees must always be aware of the "little things" and take action when they tempt us or our co-workers to perform unsafe acts. While pointing out common safety errors often made by fighter pilots and regular employees alike, Odie emphasizes the lessons all workers can learn from these mistakes.
