Eric's Risk Assessment

I used to have a sail boat. One of the most important #safety rules in sailing is "don't sail on a schedule".

What this means is that if you have a destination & a deadline, you will override safety signals (like weather) & travel in unsafe conditions due to deadline pressure. This is how serious accidents happen while sailing.

Planning for sailing puts an emphasis on having a checklist that includes having situational awareness of issues like boat condition, charts, & weather by explicitly checking the marine weather forecasts.

Also you have to be prepared to bail on your destination & schedule if the safety signals change. You have to know where your closest port is to seek shelter if a storm arises.

It occurred to me that the #airbornePrecautions equivalent is "don't be task focused on a deadline".

The need to get a task done by a deadline causes you to lose situational awareness, & accept risk that you would not otherwise accept if you thought your safety plan through ahead of time.

This is exacerbated by the total lack of a danger signal in society right now. No mitigations visible. Out of sight, out of mind.

This bit me yesterday getting a vaccination from an unmasked pharmacist in a small room. I took a risk I should not have, because I lost situational awareness under the drive to get the task done. I never would have accepted that risk in my pre-thought out safety plan. But it just popped up in the middle of the task, & I let it slide because I wasn't situationally aware.

Now, ofc I was wearing #P100 #elastomeric so the risk here is relative due to #DefenceInDepth. My event was ocular exposure during high water mark for community transmission, not being maskless. But it is not a risk I would have taken in a pre-thought through safety plan.
And that's the big deal now. Every little ordinary task needs a safety plan.

It's frustrating. It's exhausting.

When it goes wrong, when the safety signals change, when you get off plan, you have to be prepared to "bail". Halt a task, walk out, cancel, reschedule. Find a safe port in the new storm.

I should have refused entry with a maskless pharmacist. Cancelled, requested accommodation & rescheduled.

This is a kind of risk "velocitization" that happens. I am getting velocitized into one-way masking even during high #community #transmission periods. Everyone else but me unmasked is the new normal.

This is how accidents happen - a bunch of little issues leading to an unwanted, unplanned outcome.

Anyhoo, check-out #scuba dive in the pool this morning. Had to charge:
1) dive computer
2) backup dive computer is dead, need to switch batteries, the stupid Suunto Zoop Novo is hard to open 😦. Ordered tiny Torx set off Amazon. Need T6 or T7 apparently. (A scuba shop doesn't have tiny Torx? That's weird, isn't it?)
3) primary light
4) secondary light is dead, bought a new one... Surprise! Brighter than my primary! Light tech keeps massively improving as the years tick by.
5) Pressure transmitter is dead, Aaron ordering new battery kits, scuba shop isn't allowed to change 'em (Suunto says NO). So we'll just change 'em ourselves. #safety 🙄

#Sellafield #nuclear site a 'toxic mix of #bullying and harassment'

By Jim Reed and Sarah MacKinlayBBC News
9th March 2021, 09:03 EST

"Fear of reprisals'

"A work environment where staff are treated with dignity and respect is an 'essential trait of a healthy nuclear safety culture', according to the World Association of Nuclear Operators, an organisation formed in the aftermath of the #Chernobyl disaster - of which Sellafield is a member.

"An internal staff survey commissioned by the firm in 2018 and seen by the BBC showed 54% of the employees who filled in the poll agreed they 'could speak out about doing the right thing without fear of reprisals', a fall of 11 percentage points since the previous survey in 2016.

"'Sellafield management said staff surveys brought focus' to concerns about bullying and harassment at the site.

"'We did not ignore this, or seek to cover it up,' said a spokesperson. "We confronted the issue, proactively shared information with employees, and developed a company-wide improvement programme. This work is continuing."

"The BBC has also spoken to a number of former and current members of staff who had concerns about #safety at the site."

Being half crazy from PTSD I think about safety a lot. There's a constant discourse about safety on here and it's missing one thing that when you see it, it's like the emperor has no clothes.

What's missing is a deep appreciation for the reality that people are not rational actors. I'm not a rational actor, you're not a rational actor, and the people who we respect are not rational actors.

This lack of rationality manifests in hundreds of way which cannot be fully explored here, and of course it has impacts on things beyond safety. But, just some things to think about in terms of non-rationality with regards to safety:

1) Safety is generally going to be listed as a top level concern, but people will not prioritize safety in their own actions, and imposing safety top down will be understood as stifling. That people always say they care about safety first and foremost, but consistently prioritize other factors when deciding what (if any) social media to use demonstrates this particular non-rationality.

2) People aren't good at correctly evaluating what is or isn't a safety threat. Someone feeling something is or isn't a safety threat more or less just shows what makes them uncomfortable or what they are ignorant of. Essentially an entirely different analysis has to be used, because when relying on discomfort and ignorance, people are only as accurate as chance when they evaluate safety. As an example, people routinely express concerns for my safety because I ride the bus, but they are actually at much greater risks in a car. They are ignorant about busses, uncomfortable around poorer people, and rating their own ability to navigate a dangerous situation (driving) too highly.

3) Correctly identifying a safety risk is not the same thing as correctly identifying a remediation for that risk which makes you safer. I know someone who, after an internationally notorious mass shooting in our state targeting her community, bought a gun. I told her at the time, having this gun makes everyone in her household considerably more unsafe and does nothing to prevent the situation which makes her feel endangered. She still has it and we all just have to hope that far more likely tragedies from "accidents" to "domestic violence" to "suicide" do not play out.

4) Creating an impression of safety is dangerous. Removing nazis from a space is a matter of comfort which I support. However, you cannot allow users to imagine that nazis cannot read any public message if they really want to. So, a lot of the blocklist initiatives... I think there are good things that blocklists provide but safety is not one of them. I need to post like there are nazis on here (because there are) even if I can't see them. Creating an impression that there are not nazis on here can prompt people to take safety risks they should not take when it comes to posting information which could identify them.

"In the unlikely event you are ever in a public space and you see a blacklight display with glowing fluorescent colors, but the lights illuminating those colors are electric blue instead of deep purple, DO NOT LOOK AT THE TUBES, close your eyes immediately, turn around, shield your skin as much as possible, and get away from it.

Blacklight tubes are made of filter glass, which blocks everything except harmless UV-A (which, in a regular fluorescent tube, is blocked by the phosphor coating) and a small amount of purple visible light.

Germicidal tubes are made of quartz. Quartz is transparent to all wavelengths of light from UV-A through UV-C. The electric blue is the color of the bare mercury arc inside. You can see it. You can see it. You can see the electric arc. You can stare into the electric arc. You can worship the electric arc. You can give yourself to the electric arc. Remove your clothes and bathe in the forbidden actinic light of the electric arc. Free yourself. Give yourself to the electric arc. Show the electric arc your self. Give to the electric arc your eyes, your skin. Lie beneath the electric arc and show it you are worthy. Allow the electric arc to bathe your corneas and dermis in its glory. Let the electric arc change you. Let the electric arc change your DNA. Let the electric arc change you. Let the electric arc make you its own.
