This book has become a staple and a core to the safety profession. Its concepts are solid and are still highly relevant to the current day and age. It is well known for the introduction of the "Swiss cheese" concept where he likens safety defenses to layers of Swiss cheese. Accidents occur when an accident projectile defeats all the holes in the defenses. A worthwhile read for anyone looking to understand safety
