About the Author:

Thomas A. Smith, Detroit, MI. He worked in the Insurance Business for 17 years which he described a 200 years of business uninhampered by progress, before he started his own management consulting business. He specializes in helping managers and hourly workers apply the theory and methods of continual improvement to quality and safety. He has written numerous articles on a new theory of safety management. He challenges the traditional approach to safety and calls for a unique way of managing that focuses on studying and fixing work systems. Borrowing from the ideas of Dr. Deming he stresses the point that accidents are a direct result of faults built into the system, not the individuals who work in the system. His book, System Accidents, provides the story of how tradtional safety was developed and impacts us today. Mr. Smith puts forth a new theory to manage safety. He wants people work to improve the system and achieve control and excellence through the freedom to use their individual creativity and ingenuity instead of hierarchy and bureaucracy.
