Hindsight is the ability to understand an event or situation only after it has happened. How many times have you witnessed a catastrophic equipment failure and realized during the root cause analysis investigation that the little indicators you were seeing were the telltale signs that a catastrophic failure was about to occur?

Some significant equipment failure events which occurred recently showed just how much we need to take more notice of these “telltale” signs and prompted some questions. Have we become desensitized in our ability to recognize the telltale signs of failing equipment and are we accepting them as the new normal? How do we remove the complacency around these leading indicators?

To regain control we must introduce some chronic unease around the health of our assets and what we are accepting as a normalization of deviance.
