About this publication

Workplace incidents and accidents affect businesses long after the incidents occur. The interruption of busi­ness activities and running equipment results in financial loss. Injuries suffered by people damage a business’s image and competitive edge, and demotivate employees. By approaching safety risks in a measured, responsible manner, safety professionals and business owners can mitigate the occurrence of incidents and prevent them from happening in the workplace.

Analysis of Safety Incidents draws together the work and expertise of four authors experienced in the field of safety management. It guides readers through the theory of safety management with practical examples and applications as well as a series of self-assessment questions that test the readers’ understanding.
