Building on its successful predecessors, the third edition of The Field Guide to Understanding 'Human Error' will show a new way of dealing with a perceived "human error" problem in your organization. It will help you trace how your organization juggles inherent trade-offs between safety and other pressures and expectations, suggesting that you are not the custodian of an already safe system. It will encourage you to start looking more closely at the performance that others may still call "human error", allowing you to discover how your people create safety through practice, at all levels of your organization, mostly successfully, under the pressure of resource constraints and multiple conflicting goals.

Work has never been as safe as it seems today. Safety has also never been as bureaucratized as it is today. Over the past two decades, the number of safety rules and statutes has exploded, and organizations themselves are creating ever more internal compliance requirements. Bureaucracy and compliance now seem less about managing the safety of workers, and more about managing the liability of the people they work for. At the same time, progress on safety has slowed. Many incident and injury rates have flatlined. Worse, excellent safety performance on low-consequence events tends to increase the risk of fatalities and disasters.

Mate, as an Aussie in Mining Safety you know I know what you're saying and I appreciate you saying it... I must however point out something you skimmed over - mining industry regulators and retail regulators are not the same beast. Especially a monster regulator such as QLD Coal. Much of what you're referring to regarding "risk" is rats and mice in an underground coal mine. We killed over 100 men and boys in the 80's/90's explosions due to Mine Mgrs doing what you suggest - let them "self-govern". Some safety cultures are so inbred with distrust and resent that they almost toe the line of malice in their collective decision making styles. You talk "work the rule" these guys do it death, sometimes literally. Love to talk more about it - hit me on LinkedIn "Adrian Thompson - BHP".

The marketplace and allocation of internal resources are both increasingly competitive. Safety strategies of the future must align with evolving business goals. Will your company's safety efforts keep up with the demands of the future? Emerging trends are becoming increasing visible regarding how safety is viewed, thought of, strategically managed, and how progress is measured. Moreover, the cast of characters, the roles they play, and accountability for responsibilities are evolving, all for the better.
