Even when working in the most dangerous environments, workers with experience and long tenure can get too comfortable with their surroundings and the tasks they execute. An aircraft carrier abounds with dangerous conditions. Imagine every possible hazard crammed into a 1,096-foot-long, 270-foot-wide floating steel city to visualize the dangers faced daily by 5,180 sailors and Marines. This highly- interactive seminar will use real life scenarios of historical naval aircraft carrier mishaps, lessons learned from them and how these lessons can benefit your organization. 3 key factors will be identified to assist attendees with improving the performance of their own safety and health programs.
