ISO Alignments Video,Andreas Lubitz!?

I have posted today, YOUTUBE Video presentation of 50 min duration on the revised ISO 9001,14001 and new ISO 45001 key steps requirements with my thoughts and inputs. The video also covers on how an integrated management system can be easily worked than before so that duplicity can be avoided. Please post your comments either at video link page or here. Thank you in advance.

I took the picture during my recent travel.

This is more relevant in context of Wellness, Work place stress that can have disasterous consequences as was the case on 24th March 2015. Andreas Lubitz, who was copilot of German Wings flight, crashed his plane at Alps (Flying from Barcelona to Düsseldorf) killing all 150+ passengers on board. 

Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot who deliberately crashed his Germanwings flight killing everyone on board, kept a diary that reveals how profoundly disturbed he was in the months leading up to the disaster, it has emerged. The diary and other details uncovered in the German investigation raise serious questions over why Lubitz’s doctors did not alert the authorities to the danger he posed, according to details leaked to the German press . Investigators have discovered a sheet of paper Lubitz left dated March 22, on which he wrote “Decision Sunday”, followed by the BCN, the code for Barcelona airport.

Work place Stress due to Fatigue, Mental conditions play a huge part in deciding a safer work place. In the current day work environment  especially post Y2K era,where Stress, Competition, compatibility, Proving to be different, Social and peer pressure can easily lead to burn out, decay of performance, and few times even leading to suicides at work are known. It is very essential that organisations give enough focus and attention and work program which cover policy, coaching, counselling and remedial measures. While culture in broader environment would not let employees accept such issues (Say USA as an example, where Work and Life are considered by folks as two separate entities) a great manager with Relationship building, good network, performance review, as well as good occupation wellness support system with counselling, can decode issues in the very early stage. Goes to show again why relationship at work matters!

Survey of work related Stress BRICS Nation! 

I am also posting my thoughts,as I just heard from my son,who is nine months in to corporate life,describing a star performer at work, known to him,planning to quit 8 year job and the organisation doing its best to sort things out!. This person’s performance dipped very significantly in recent past,for whatever reason totally unconnected to work! Mental well-being, balance, Emotional Agility is key for a successful life. Great organisation go a long way to nurture them as a two-way street with equal open participation by employee themselves willing to accept an issue exist.
