Published more than ten years ago, the first edition of Accident/Incident Prevention Techniques provided clear, comprehensive guidance on how to mitigate the cost, in personnel and to the bottom line, of accidents/incidents in the workplace. Significantly revised and updated, this Second Edition takes its place as the A to Z hands-on guide to the responsibilities, principles, tools, and techniques involved in accident investigative planning and preparation.

Written by safety expert Charles D. Reese, the book details tried and true techniques that have been used by the occupational safety and health community for many years. It also presents the best theoretical methods to help those responsible for occupational safety develop the best prevention initiatives. Unlike most books on accident prevention that focus on specific job hazards, Dr. Reese provides in-depth instruction on accident prevention techniques, such as job hazard analysis, safe operating procedures and job safety observations as they apply to types of jobs in the workplace. The focus then is on identifying and addressing existing or potential work-related hazards.
