In addition, readers will find new chapters dedicated to: Management of change and pre-job planning Indirect-to-direct accident cost ratios Leading and lagging indicators Opportunities for safety professionals to apply lean concepts Role of safety professionals in implementing sustainability Financial management concepts and practices that safety professionals should know Many chapters are highly thought-provoking, questioning long-accepted concepts in the interest of advancing and improving the professional practice of safety.

Safety professionals should also refer to the text in order to update and improve their safety skills and knowledge.
