                        Avoiding jail time by using the Eisenhower box

                        Avoiding jail time by using the Eisenhower box

                        How “I don’t have the time” can end up being “I wish I had found the time.”


                        “What is important is seldom urgent and what is urgent is seldom important.” – Dwight Eisenhower, 34th President of the United States. 


                        The Eisenhower box helps put things into perspective when juggling competing priorities by considering the attributes of an issue or task in terms of its urgency and importance.

                        We work with thousands of companies helping make sure their machinery safety is managed well and we have never met anyone who has direct responsibility for machinery safety who didn’t believe that it is very important.  

                        The level of urgency generally revolves around their experience with catastrophic machinery safety incidents.

                        Having said this, time and time again we meet with clients and prospects with so many competing priorities, that they get sucked into a VORTEX OF URGENCY. When you enter a vortex of urgency, your perception of importance is impaired – and bad prioritisation results.

                        It is remarkable how often we see this, and consequently see machinery safety pushed down the priority list because it is not a “burning platform”.

                        Interestingly, the decision to park machinery safety improvements in larger organisations is often due to consideration of other systems and organisational confusion as to where their machinery safety system fits with the other operating systems currently in place or under consideration.

                        When an organisation is in this paralysed state, it is extremely vulnerable. Its machinery safety system is under par meaning the risk of catastrophic incidents continues to be higher than it should be.

                        Ironically, a catastrophic safety incident during this period will often elevate machinery safety to “burning platform” status. That’s often where we are deployed to deliver a quantum leap in machinery safety systems and standards.  


                        At this point, the client recognises several things:

                        • They shouldn’t have procrastinated about the decision to invest in machinery safety

                        • Their procrastination is likely to have led to a higher level of culpability

                        • Plant Assessor can easily be used side by side with any other operating system and integrated with existing or future systems if required


                        In closing, the critical questions to ask yourself are:

                        • Where does machinery safety fit inside your Eisenhower box?

                        • Can you afford not to spend time on this right now?

                        • Do you need to schedule a time to make it happen?
