So lets think about preparing for sea. The principle suggests that 20% of the hazards will cause 80% of the injuries, so it makes sense to target those 20% but how do you know which are the 20% to focus on? Well if you had a system of accident and near miss reporting, that might be a good start point, so why not go to the old cutlery draw and have a look? So efficient accident reporting informs efficient accident prevention. A word of caution though, not all accidents have the same consequence. In fact MOB is very unlikely, but very high impact if it does occur, so don’t just use empirical mathematics, temper it with good old common sense.
Scott and I have been completing work in two other vital areas; bungs and Medical 1st aid.
So I feel much more comfortable but there is still some work to do an boxing it up.
I want to close with two thoughts.
