Back to Pre-Accident Investigations: An Introduction to Organizational Safety
For decades, it was thought that a good safety program was determined by how many days an organization went without having an accident. This is a myth and an old-fashioned, antiquated concept.
Accidents, incidents, and potential disasters may lurk around every corner, it they may be staring you right in the face. Pre-Accident Investigations will help you to identify complex, fatal and costly incidents in your organization before they take place. It is the goal of this book to provide management with practical guides, tips and tools, and suggestions for managing risks, hazards and safety.
This may not be the safety “silver bullet,” but the books contains a new set of skills written for the managers who drive safety in their workplaces. The book provides a usable road map for understanding a different way to manage safety in the workplace. If you are starting a new program, revamping an old program, or are simply interested in understanding more about safety performance, this book is not full of academic theory but packed with tested and practical concepts; advice, tools and programs that have been proven in the field. Pre-Accident Investigations will assist you in making your organization the safest in your industry, as well as saving money and, more importantly, lives.
