How Many Fatalities Does It Take To Learn To Prevent Them?
A Company in Northern Ireland has had the third fatality in since 2009 at landfills it operates. The first fatality resulted in a £190,000 fine. The second fatality resulted in a £280,000 fine. The most recent fatality resulted in a £60,000 fine.
If seems that fines aren’t enough to make corrective actions happen. After multiple fatalities in a fairly simple operation (burrying garbage), it seems like they could learn from their mistakes and stop future fatalities.
Maybe it is time to try advanced root cause analysis?
