Decisions that get people killed.


Mark Paradies, President System Improvements, Inc.

When you read “decisions that get people killed” do you think about decisions that workers make? These are not the decisions that will be examined. What will be examined are decisions that set up major accidents. These types of decisions are usually made by senior management, and they can have very serious consequences. Management needs to know about them, and what they need to do to prevent major accidents.
