Jay Jamali's recent presentation, "Prevention through Design (PtD)" made at the March 13, 2013, ASSE Conference in Pleasanton California.
The goal of Prevention through Design (PtD) is to address occupational safety and health issues in the design and redesign process to prevent or minimize work-related hazards associated with the: Construction, Manufacture, Use, Maintenance and Disposal of facilities, materials, equipment and processes.
Changes in level of safety can only come about through changes that address not only people, but also the many systems with which people interact.
Studies implicate design in 37% of all job-related fatalities. (Driscoll 2008)
