H. W. Heinrich was a pioneer of accident prevention and investigation in the 1930s. This second edition of Heinrich Revisited: Truisms or Myths analyzes the principles of Heinrich’s safety premises, reviews their origins, and evaluates whether they are truisms or myths. Fred A. Manuele delves deeper in this edition to determine whether Heinrich’s theories are valid and effective in today’s safety practices and how eliminating myths can improve accident prevention systems.
This new edition includes updated material to support Manuele’s claims, and seven new chapters provide guidance on current thinking and risk management. These new chapters specifically address incident investigation, currently accepted premises, avoiding and reducing human error, ANSI/AIHA Z10-2012, prevention through design, and the socio-technical model.Paperback: 144 PagesPublisher: National Safety Council (2014)Language: EnglishISBN: 978-0-87912-330-7 Product Dimensions: 6 x 9 inches

Written by renowned safety consultant Dan Petersen, Authentic Involvement goes beyond behavior-based safety to the involvement of all employees in the safety process.
The behavior-based approach encourages peer observations and the correction of unsafe behaviors, and can encourage limited active involvement by management. In contrast, authentic involvement seeks to empower all employees while making management's efforts more visible.
By promoting the responsibilities, achievements, and recognition of employees, management creates a positive perception of safety involvement. When management has greater participation and accountability and promotes a culture of by all workers, employees are motivated to work toward greater safety.
