Synopsis: Approximately four construction workers are killed every day in the U.S., but for some reason there is little public outrage. David MacCollum, long a champion of injury prevention by design, brings to life the challenges workers face in dangerous jobs. We know how to prevent most of these deaths. MacCollum creates a story that makes us care. Anyone who has encountered opposition when trying to improve the safety culture by including design-based-safety must read this book. It tells safety professionals what they need to hear not what they would like to hear.
