Example text

To summarize: • Your workplace safety programs must recognize your employees’ actual exposures. • The program you develop must be capable of mitigating those exposures and ultimately the injuries and illnesses that may occur. • Your analysis, regardless of the methodology employed, must be capable of analyzing exposures and outcomes. As we move through this chapter and we refer to workplace safety programs, we ask that you think in terms of injury and illness prevention. why workplace safety programs?

Overcoming an Important Paradox We end this first chapter with a philosophical thought that has proven meaningful to many people. To have any hope of developing a meaningful workplace safety program, you have to get at it. What do we mean by this? Let’s use a story to make our point. During the early stages of World War II and in spite of the urgings of Winston Churchill, the United States did not enter the war in Europe for quite some time. Churchill kept at it in 1939, 1940, and 1941, repeatedly asking the United States to get involved.

Much the same happens in the practice of workplace safety: We recognize a hazard or an adverse outcome, and instead of attacking it fully at the outset, we try several other steps first. Eventually we get it right, but while we are working toward getting it right, the hazards to employees continue, as do injuries and illnesses. We call this approach to safety the Churchill Paradox. Overcoming the paradox and ensuring that the best workplace safety steps are implemented first will ultimately save you time, money, and the health of your workforce.
