Simplicity in Safety Investigations : A Practitioner's Guide to Applying Safety Science Paperback / softback


This innovative book aims to bring the science of safety into a simple and practical approach to investigating workplace incidents.

As a basis, it uses the ideas of some of the great safety science thinkers of our time.

These include Sidney Dekker, Todd Conklin, Erik Hollnagel, Daniel Kahneman, James Reason and Dylan Evans, alongside others and the author's own extensive industry experience.

Simplicity in Safety Investigations: A Practitioner's Guide to Applying Safety Science will better equip readers to deal with incident investigations by helping them understand the science behind investigation techniques, and by exploring coaching and leadership styles that help them ask better questions both before and after workplace incidents.

The first two chapters of the book focus on our mindset as we approach and undertake investigations, and the simple things we all must do before an investigation starts.

The third chapter is a step-by-step guide on how to undertake both simple and more detailed workplace incident investigations.

Chapter 4 is reserved for a more detailed review and set of explanations around the science and thinking behind the method and approach. This book serves as an easy-to-follow, real-world reference for supervisors, managers and safety practitioners across many industries.
