Human error contributes to at least 80% of workplace accidents and near-misses. By applying the principles of marginal gain and using lessons drawn from the high risk world of outdoor adventure, this book provides a variety of practical solutions that will reduce the incidence of human error in the workplace, reduce the number of accidents and near-misses, and reduce time taken off work due to injury or ill-health. Many organizations focus heavily on a systems and procedural approach. It is essential to explore other ways of managing the human dynamic more effectively. By using principles from high level sports and applying them to Health and Safety, this book offers those solutions.
