Safety moments to learning moments
I always intended for this blog page to be for sharing nuggets of eureka moments, great learning and tremendous teaching. Last week whilst at a meeting in the board room of one of the world’s top oil and gas service provider companies I had one of those moments.
Safety is at the heart if this industry. This runs from oil rigs to board rooms. Before the meeting started, the head of graduate recruitment started the meeting as all meeting chairs now do- with a safety moment.
She shared a story of when safety was important to her (in this instance, it was planning a mountain expedition over her weekend).
Should we start each meeting with a personal learning moment? Are we lifelong learners? Do we practice what we preach?
Where oil and gas have committed to safety first, have all education organisations fully embedded learning first?
