Preventing Serious Injuries and Fatalities

Over the past decade, serious events and fatalities do not show reduction rates comparable to less serious workplace injuries. This problem should raise serious questions and implications for safety leaders at all organisational levels, from the first level of supervision to the senior-most executive and board member, and to the labor leader and government regulator.

Seven multinational corporations experiencing this pattern sought to develop a better understanding of the causes and correlates of SIFs. These organisations submitted two years of accident data related to SIFs, less-serious recordable injuries, and near-misses. In total, this data included 1,028 event cases representing approximately one million global workers and contractors.

The result of this research ultimately leads to a better understanding of SIF causes and establishment of new paradigms for SIF prevention.
