As with any goal, it is the desired outcome, not always the attainable outcome” [3]. “Zero injuries must be your goal. Once your mind-set says that some accidents are acceptable, you’ve lost the battle. Then you’ve established the crutch excuse of the ‘unavoidable’ accident. How many accidents are acceptable? One but not two? ” [3]. “I believe a zero injury/illness goal is attainable for some facilities. For others more realistic goals should be selected” [3]. “With health, safety, and environmental strategies so completely thought out and sophisticated, ‘zero injury’ is the only real goal left.

If employees were lazy or unwilling to show initiative or responsibility, if they were indifferent or intransigent, the fault lay in management methods. In other words, McGregor was redefining the old military adage: “There are no bad troops, only bad officers” [2]. McGregor believed that human beings had far greater potential than the industrial management of his time could understand. Theory X denied even the existence of that potential; Theory Y challenged management “to innovate, to discover new ways of organizing and directing human effort, even though we recognize that the perfect organization, like the perfect vacuum, is practically out of reach” [2].

And George Germain use the same analogy of the iceberg theory to describe accident (incident) costs. Bird and Germain contend that the medical or insurance compensation costs are the visible tip of the iceberg. For example, for every $1 spent on an obvious incident, from $5 to $50 or more is likely to be spent on below the surface (below the iceberg). According to Bird and Germain, the below-the-surface cost can include the following: • • • • • • • • Uninsured costs for building repairs Tool or equipment damage Replacement of damaged products and/or materials Losses from production delays and interruptions of a business Legal expenses Replacement of emergency supplies and equipment Renting of needed interim equipment Paying for time spent on the investigation [1] Refer to Figure 1-3 for the cost of accidents at work.
