Prevention of Incidents VS Creating Safety
It’s a subtle but important difference. Prevention efforts focus on avoiding the negative. Creating Safety focuses on creating work which is done in a way that doesn’t take unnecessary risks and gets the job done.
Prevention relies on thinking that your experience/knowledge with past loss is important in predicting the future. It may NOT be. The one incident may never happen again. How much effort are you going to put into it to making sure what may never happen again never happens again? It could get very expensive.
