'The concepts outlined in this absorbing book are eminently practical and have been tested in the field. Pre-Accident Investigations might well not only enhance safety but save organizations money - and potentially lives too.' --- --The RoSPA Occupational Safety & Health Journal, December 2012
Conklin slaughters many holy cows in this very readable book, including the notion of cause , which he rejects as simply a retrospective construct. Workers don t cause failure; what workers do is trigger a whole lot of weaknesses that exist in environments, processes, systems, job sites, and in the work or organization itself. Conklin s ideas are persuasive, challenging, crystal clear, and expressed with humility and acknowledgement of what he has learned from others. ----- Safeguard, July/August 2013
