Have you learned from an Accident, or a Near Miss?

How about sharing that valuable experience with others?
In Chicago, at the National ACS Mtg next March 25-29, we'll have a  
session "Learning by Accident".

You are cordially invited to present a paper ( or a poster )  
describing the incident, and how it taught you ( and/or others! ) a  
valuable SAFETY lesson.

If you'd prefer, please just send along a description of the  
incident, and we'll present it anonymously, or with appropriate  
reference to you ( YOUR CHOICE! ) in one of our planned presentations.

We all have heard about "Teachable Moments", right?   Well, when your  
adrenaline is running hot and fast after a near miss, or after an  
actual accident, you have just had that experience imbedded in your  
long term memory!

Share the wealth!  Tell us about your experience.
