Serious Injury and Fatality Prevention: Perspectives and Practices


In the past twenty years, the US has seen gains in workplace safety, particularly regarding total recordable incident rate (TRIR). This reduction in workplace injuries should not be overshadowed by another more disturbing trend, namely that the number of life-altering injuries and fatal incidents has been on a much slower decline, and in fact has increased for the past three years. The next step in the journey to safety excellence, and one that Institute companies are currently pursuing, is the elimination of serious injuries and life-altering events. This paper summarizes the current state of research on serious injury and fatality (SIF) prevention and provides insight into how Institute organizations are protecting their workers from harm.
