Overview

Modern Accident Investigation and Analysis An Executive Guide Ted S. Ferry This book fills the need for a general study of accident investigation designed for management in business and industry where millions of mishaps occur every year. It provides a variety of tools and techniques for both investigating and analyzing accidents, explains how to organize and manage an investigation; how to report a mishap, from the minimum required by law to the fuller documentation needed for liability and compensation information; and how to use the information for planning corrective action. 1981 273 pp. Systems Analysis and Policy Sciences Theory and Practice Robert M. Krone This book outlines an expanded view, and a new theory, of systems analysis as an essential set of concepts and techniques for analysts, managers, politicians, and for civil or military decision makers—anyone who must deal with human systems. The book will be useful both to those inside organizations trying to improve systems, as well as to those being serviced, or disserviced, by those organizations. The new approach melds the mathematical and economic systems analysis of the 1940s through the 1970s with the qualitative variables and concepts of the emerging literature of policy sciences. It provides a bridge for the quantitative-qualitative gap previously existing in systems analysis literature and practice. 1980 216 pp. Safety Training Methods Jack B. Re Velle Intended for "hands-on" use by persons who are responsible for initiating and providing safety training programs in their organizations, this book is both detailed enough for the neophyte employee and supervisor and broad enough for the experienced manager. It serves as a working reference for designing, implementing, and monitoring a safety training program. Discusses OSHA training requirements; training in safety recordkeeping, fire safety, hazard inspection, accident investigation, and medical and first aid; and evaluating safety training effectiveness. 1980 248 pp.
