Advanced Safety Management Focusing on Z10 and Serious Injury Prevention (047010953X) cover image
Learn how to improve the effectiveness of safety and health management systems by adopting ANSI Z10 provisions and avoid serious workplace injuries

Advanced Safety Management gives you the information and guidance you need to ensure that your organization can implement the ANSI Z10 standard. The book also helps you determine and prepare for the beneficial effects that integrating its provisions can have on productivity, cost efficiency, and quality.

Among the key topics the author addresses are specific provisions in the ANSI standard not yet covered by typical safety management systems, such as:

Risk assessment methods and prioritization

Applying a prescribed hierarchy of controls

Implementing and performing safety design reviews

Including safety specifications in purchasing and procurement systems

Management of change systems

Recognizing that typical safety management systems do not often include particularly crafted provisions for serious injury and fatality prevention, the author also provides detailed guidance to help you manage this crucial issue. You therefore not only learn how to meet the new Z10 standard, but you also learn how to integrate best practices for the prevention of serious injuries in your workplace.

The bestselling author of this book, Fred Manuele, is a Fellow of the American Society of Safety Engineers, with more than five decades of experience in the practice of safety. His advice is based not only on the latest research findings, but also on his own firsthand experience in helping organizations implement successful safety management systems. Following his clear guidance, you and your organization can implement Z10 provisions and avoid serious work-place injuries.
