Safety in the Extreme: Every Action Matters

During Aaron’s expedition to the South Pole, he had to manage every aspect of his safety and health every day.

It takes constant concentration to avoid life-threatening dangers in extreme environments.
Travel in polar regions alone is like being on Mars – often there’s no one on Earth who can help in the event of an accident.

He shares techniques with audiences about how a mindful safety attitude makes all the difference in returning home alive and in one piece in this keynote.

Safety Program Focus
•Sweat the details – small things make a big difference.
•Big disasters rarely happen out of nowhere. They start as a series of small mishaps from poor decisions to create life-threatening situations.
•Avoid safety burnout from complacency – create a Mindful Safety environment 100% of the time.
•Safety is a personal responsibility. It cannot be delegated to someone else.
