Why do bad things happen to individuals and teams with stellar safety histories? Under everyday pressures, they may succumb to a long-term phenomenon called normalization of deviance. In this exclusive video from the 2014 IADC Health, Safety, Environment & Training Conference held last week in Houston, astronaut Mike Mullane discusses the consequences of this normalization and what companies can do to prevent it from impacting safety. Mr Mullane, who has completed three space missions, draws on his NASA experience to help the oil and gas industry prevent a “predictable surprise.”
