In this book, the author describes groundbreaking research on a unique method of assessing the state of safety management in a company. He then compares this information to how the world's safest companies manage to get their outstanding results. This allows companies for the first time to quantitatively measure such critical intangibles as management commitment and worker involvement as well as injury investigation and enforcement of safety rules.
