Defenceless Moments – A different perspective on serious injuries
This book is based on a series of 12 short articles that were published in safety magazines all over the world. These articles–now chapters–were written and designed to provide a number of different perspectives–or paradigm shifts–in terms of how most people think about industrial safety, and how most people think about accidental injury causation in general. Perhaps the most serious injuries and unintentional fatalities, whether they occur at work, on the road or in the home/community.
The book is a great read for those that want to have these great safety topics on hand in one publication, and it’s an excellent companion to his previous book, Inside Out.
