A zoo can teach you

Little Critters Traveling Petting Zoo brings you the familiar animals from a traditional farmyard - sheep, miniature horses, a miniature donkey, chickens and rabbits, as well as pygmy goats, Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs and alpacas! This gives children the chance to see, touch and learn about a wide range of animals, all at the same time. Invite us to your children's party and give them a treat they will remember for ever. A traveling petting zoo is not just a novel event for a children's party, it is also great fun for adults!

How have you seen the same principles applied elsewhere? List at least one example for each principle, from health care or another hazardous setting. Reptile Keeper Michele Hoffman says that teamwork and a culture of transparency and trust is important to protecting safety.

How do you think teamwork promotes each of the principles of reliable design? What would happen if the zoo waited to redesign its systems until an actual failure — not just the possibility of a failure — had occurred? In your experience, are health systems more often proactive or reactive when it comes to addressing safety issues?

Even though most modern zoos make efforts to offer animals a more natural environment, most captive animals in zoos are unable to live in a way that they would naturally and some may even be on medication to alter their behaviour.
