Accident cost
(a) Injury and illness costs
  •  Medical treatment
  •  Compensation costs
(b) Ledger costs of property damage
  •  Product and material damage
  •  Production delays
  •  Tool and equipment damage
  •  Building damage
  •  Expenditure of emergency supplies
  •  Legal expenses
  •  Investigation time
  •  Wages paid for time lost
  •  Overtime
  •  Cost of hiring and training replacement
  •  Loss of business and goodwill
Management control of loss
Management control system is the planning, organizing, leading and controlling of all vital functions in the HSE aspects
  • Identification of work required to achieve desired loss objective Standards establishment.
  • Measuring performance.
  • Evaluating performance.
  • Correcting deficiencies.
Accident/incident investigations
Effective investigations is a key element to make reactive corrective actions. The investigation must never end in finger-pointing, blame-fixing or fault-finding exercises, but determine the real reasons for what happened and arrive at effective solutions to the problems involved .

Effective investigation reports shall
Describe what happened in an accurate statement
  • Determine the real causes
  • Decide the risks, likelihood for recurrence and potential for major loss 
  • Develop controls to eliminate the recurrence
  • Define trends for protective future work
  • Demonstrate concern for personnel involved
Planned inspections
Inspection is one of the best tools available to find problems and assess their risks before accidents and other loss occur.
A well-managed inspection program can meet goals, such as:
  • Identify potential problems that were not anticipated during design
  • Identify equipment deficiencies due to wear and tear, or inadequate capacity
  • Identify improper employee actions
  • Identify effect of changes in process or materials
  • Identify inadequacies in remedial actions
  • Provide management self-appraisal information
  • Demonstrate management commitment
Job/task analysis and procedure
Job/task analysis is a critical program activity, not only for the health and safety of workers, but also for the safety of the organization itself. To day there is enormous pressure to reduce cost while at the same time improving quality .
The single most useful tool to meet HSE objectives is to systematically analyze the work, which is done, and to establish appropriate procedures or practices to ensure it is consistently done the proper way.
The objective in job/task analyze is to apply a systematically and practical break down approach:
  • Identify the tasks
  • Identify the critical tasks
  • Break down critical tasks into steps or activities
  • Pin-point loss exposures
  • Make an efficiency check
  • Develop controls
  • Write procedure or practices
  • Put to work
  • Update and maintain records
Planned job/task observation
One quality, which sets supervisors apart from others, is their knowledge of what is going on in their areas of responsibility.
The best way to find out how well a person does a particular job or task is to observe him/her in doing it. The importance of identifying and evaluating changes in the ways people do critical tasks cannot be overstated. There is abundant evidence that undetected change in the workplace is a major source of causal factors that contribute to a high percentage of accidents.

Planned observation is a tool for observing conditions and practices in an organized and systematic way. It enables the observer to:
  • Pin-point practices that could cause accidents
  • Determine specific needs for coaching and training
  • Learn more about the work habits
  • Check the adequacy of existing job methods and procedures
  • Follow-up on the effectiveness of recent training
  • Give appropriate on-the-spot constructive correction
  • Spotlight specific behavior for recognition and reinforcement
Job observation can put real vision into supervision

Safety meetings
Safety meetings are a question of communication, and to deal with the problems on the table, you must know how to work with the people around it.
  • Effective safety meetings serve a number of basic management purposes:
  • They are often the only way that management can be sure that everyone has received a critical message in the most timely way
  • They create a cooperative climate through participation and group interaction
  • They help give everyone the same attention and exposure to information
  • They give the person conducting the meeting practice in improving
  • Communications and human relations skills
  • They help build that person's image as a leader in the minds of the team members
Occupational health
Occupational health hazards pose some of the most significant management challenges of this decade.
Frontline managers are in an ideal position to help reduce or otherwise control occupational health hazards because of their relationship to workers, their management skills and their knowledge of the work within their areas of responsibility.

Types of occupational health hazards workers are exposed to can be:
  • Chemicals; mist, vapors, gases, fumes, liquids and pastes whose chemical composition can create problems
  • Physical; noise, radiation, temperature, pressure, humidity, illumination and vibration
  • Biological; insects, fungi, viruses, bacteria and food poisoning
  • Ergonomic; monotony, work overload, body position, metabolic cycles and psychosocial
Waste control
Waste control is a vital part of loss control, it also relates to safety, since waste can contribute to accidents, injuries, environmental impact and damage. Plant air leakage is not only wasteful, but can also injure people and damage materials. Water leakage may create dangerous slippery surface, or damage costly equipment.
Waste control is beneficial because it results in:
  • Increased awareness of the value of tools, materials, equipment, supplies and facilities
  • A safer plant environment, with fewer serious injuries
  • Lower cost and higher profitability
  • Reduced damage, downtime and delays
Off-the-job and family safety
There are two major reasons why every company and every supervisor should be interested and involved in the off-the-job safety; the human and the business reason.
On the human side, no supervisor wants his or her people killed, disabled or otherwise harmed. Whether accidents occur on the job or off-the-job makes no difference in terms of the resulting pain, suffering and tragedy.
On the business side, there are many additional reasons for being interested and involved in off-the-job safety, such as:
  • Quality and production suffer when skilled workers are absent or disabled because of injury at home
  • Job performance is downgraded when workers are absent or distraught
  • Time and money has to be spent to recruit temporary manpower
