Fueled by more than 30 years in the safety industry and by thousands of interviews with managers and workers worldwide, McKinnon confronts the safety industry's most prevalent and most dangerous myths head-on. He identifies 20 common safety paradigms, examines how these misconceptions negatively impact the way employers manage safety and health in their facilities, and provides guidelines for changes that will reduce accidents in the workplace.
