Safety metrics and measurement is a big issue and it's not as simple as it may seem at first.
We caught up with our friend Carsten Busch to discuss safety measurement and safety metrics in some detail. Hope you enjoy this discussion. You may remember Carsten from our previous discussion on Safety Myths or from his own MindtheRisk website or social media postings. Additionally, you may find our earlier discussion with Pam Walaski, Safety Metrics Reconsidered, worth a listen on this issue.
Be sure to check out Carsten's books:
Finally, if you enjoyed this discussion, you'll no-doubt enjoy the guide to "new views" of safety we've got for you below--including many global safety experts discussing HOP, HPI, Safety Differently, Safety-II, Resilience Engineering, and more. And yep, Carsten's in the guide!
