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.
