Injury Prevention Analysis for the Safety Manager

The role of the Safety Analyst in Injury Prevention is to serve as an independent voice for a manufacturer or distributor and evaluate the risks of injury associated with the company’s products. Free from loyalty to functional or operational groups such as design, manufacturing, marketing or sales, the analyst gathers data, develops a risk assessment and reports findings directly to top management. To accomplish these goals the safety manager must act in six distinct areas.

Corporate Safety Policies

Product Hazards

Forseeable Use

Risk Factors

Safety Measures

Corrective Action
