The Art and Science of Predicting Accidents

Description: This session will present a series of actual accident cases that were investigated and analyzed by a professional industrial and construction accident investigator with more than 30 years experience. It will demonstrate how basic research and application of the scientific method of analysis to workplace conditions, prior to the occurrence of those accidents would have made them very foreseeable and thereby preventable.
