“Every accident, no matter how minor, is a failure of organization.” This quotation delivered in 1953 by Professor Kenneth R. Andrews of the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration, carries the implication that an accident is a reflection on management’s ability to manage.
We need to understand that an objective investigation to determine the root causes of an accident is both a science and an art. As a science it demands special techniques and disciplines that are unfolded in this book. It is an art because of the background of experience, even an acquired intuition, needed to bring together the information and analyze it properly for a productive conclusion, letting the chips fall where they may.
