Thanks Bill. How do you address this at your workplace or in training? If you have a non-entry retrieval system set up every time that at least will decrease the chance that someone will go in. Practice drills with "dummy" in confined space may provide "muscle memory" if you see someone in the space too. Just not always sure how to address the adrenaline rush that likely occurs in the heat of the moment.

Good observation & posting! I have run across this observation as well, those hard-wired tendencies can be dangerous at times, rational thought can get overwelmed, even for "pros". BP
