735 Managing Severity and Frequency: Demonstrating Results in Fatality Prevention

Summary: This paper illustrates the opportunity to impact fatality and serious injury prevention with proven results from a practical example. Contact with electrical energy has high potential for occupational fatality, with one in 13 lost time injuries from electrical contact being fatal. While having high potential for fatality, lost time injures from electrical contact comprise less than 0.2% of all lost time injuries, thus occur with very low frequency compared to other types of injury in the workplace. This paper discusses the results of changing the electrical safety culture within the context of an existing high performing safety management system.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
