Description:

"Near-miss" incidents are truly the foundation of major injuries, the building blocks of accidents, and warning signs that loss is imminent. They can also form the impetus for proactive, preventative actions. Safety Management: Near Miss Identification, Recognition, and Investigation explores how to implement a "near-miss" incident identification, recognition, investigation, and rectification program.

Supported by more than 30 years of international safety experience and research, this book:

  • Provides a step-by-step program on how to set up a "near-miss" incident program in the workplace
  • Critiques the accident sequence and the definition and role of a "near-miss" in the future of the organization
  • Explains how this aspect of a safety program has a profound impact on improving the safety of a workplace
  • Outlines management function in safety and how it relates to "near-miss" incidents
  • Includes a number of examples and case studies to clarify the philosophy behind "near-miss" incidents
  • Focuses on the success of implementing such a safety program at two large copper mines as well as numerous diverse industries and an aluminum smelter in the Middle East
