Safety or the effects of its absence are often attributed to fate and loosely termed as “acts of God”. In reality, incidents occur when one or more components of a system or their mutual linkages fail to perform satisfactorily. It is not a simple task to analyse a system failure scenario wherein multiple components interact and it certainly is not a layman's job.

The book, systematically organised in fifteen chapters, addresses all components of industrial safety management and explains their principles with the aim to help readers develop good understanding of the subject.
