We all know that safety should be an integral part of the systems that we build and operate. The public demands that they are protected from accidents, yet industry and government do not always know how to reach this common goal. This book gives engineers and managers working in companies and governments around the world a pragmatic and reasonable approach to system safety and risk assessment techniques. It explains in easy-to-understand language how to design workable safety management systems and implement tested solutions immediately.

The book is intended for working engineers who know that they need to build safe systems, but aren't sure where to start. To make it easy to get started quickly, it includes numerous real-life engineering examples. The book's many practical tips and best practices explain not only how to prevent accidents, but also how to build safety into systems at a sensible price. The book also includes numerous case studies from real disasters that describe what went wrong and the lessons learned.

See What's New in the Second Edition:

"I found Nick's chapters on Safety Management Systems and Government Regulations and Safety Oversight, to be very comprehensive, insightful and informative. As a practicing occupational health and safety regulator and a previous transport safety regulator, I will certainly keep Nick's second edition on my book shelf as a ready reference, just as I do with his first edition."
-Len Neist, Health & Safety Regulator, Australia
