Monday Accidents & Lessons Learned – Common Tasks That Could Have Benefited from Proactive Safeguards Analysis

Watch the following accidents unfold and think …

What was the HAZARD???

What was the TARGET???

And what were the SAFEGUARDS that the users had planned???


So many times I see:

  • alertness of the operator
  • carefulness of the user, or
  • luck of the target.

As the final (or only) Safeguard that is preventing an accident.

Could have the accident activities above benefited from even a simple Safeguards Analysis befopre they started? You bet!

That is this weeks lesson learned.
