The NASA Space Shuttle Disasters
January 28th 1986 - the Space Shuttle Challenger explodes just
one minute after launch. As the world looked on horrified, few
realised that this was an inevitable accident that had been
predicted by the designers for years. Indeed, the day before the
key engineers believed that there was "essentially a 100%
probability of disaster".
After the accident NASA embarked upon major management reforms.
Sadly the changes made the launches look almost too safe and as a
result over the subsequent years quality and relationships slipped
Then in February 2003 - Space Shuttle Colombia burns up on
re-entry and the entire crew perish. The chilling fact was that
this was a management repeat of the Chanllenger disaster - NASA had
not truly learned the lessons of the past!
What's in it for me
A chance to hear one of the country's leading speakers explain
how the space shuttle disaster of 2003 was totally predictable and
how lessons from 1986 had not been applied. Although the concept of
change management is familiar to safety professionals, this
presentation will challenge delegates to consider how changes are
implemented, the impact they can have on personal behaviours,
relationships and the potential safety implications.
