Safety through design is not a precise science. Since it is not a “one size fits all” type of effort, it will require customization within your company. But, the basic concepts of early involvement in the design stage, careful evaluation of hazards and risk assessment are universally applicable.
Readers will find divergent viewpoints, which are acceptable, since there has been success with many different approaches to their application. This text is focused on providing significant insights into the concepts, and their potential integration and application in your operations. The material must be sorted, evaluated and massaged to produce an appropriate blend for your operations, since safety through design is not a “cookie cutter” practice.

Occupational safety and health is a concern for workers and employers alike. Workplaces have many different types of hazards, and thousands of people are injured, disabled, or killed on the job each year. The goal of occupational safety and health is to reduce the injuries and illnesses that occur in the workplace.
Having a safe place to work is good for your health; it is also good for your business. The costs associated with injuries and illnesses, lost wage compensation, insurance premiums, hiring replacement workers, damaged equipment, and lost production are immense expenses for businesses and the economy in general.
Many U.S. workplaces have a staff of professionals with university degrees and experience in occupational safety and health. However, in many companies the task of developing and implementing injury and illness programs falls to employees with experience and responsibilities in other areas such as the human resources manager, the security officer, or the quality control manager.
Basics of Occupational Safety and Health provides an introduction to the development of programs that reduce injuries and address regulatory requirements. At the same time, this book describes how good health and safety programs improve the sustainability of the organization through continuous improvement.

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.
