  • On the Safety Theorem

    • Authors: Ralph L. Barnett
      Pages: 50 - 53
      Abstract: The contrivances of humankind come into existence through divine intervention, stealth, creative impulse, transformation, systematic design, evolutionary forces, and accidental benevolence. According to the safety theorem the elements of this cosmic stew have a common property, they can all cause harm. The safety theorem appears in many of the most important safety concepts, e.g., the colloquial definition of safety, the technical definition of safety, the control hierarchy, risk abatement, “safety through design” protocol, alternative design theory, and the classification of safety devices. According to the safety theorem, Ÿ The colloquial definition of safety, freedom from the occurrence of injury or loss, exists only as a concept not a reality. Ÿ A safe state does not exist, it may be approached asymptotically in the sense that a cup cannot be emptied by drinking half, followed by drinking half the remainder, etc. You may get as close to empty as you want; but, an infinite number of trials will not empty the cup. Ÿ Laypeople by and large mistakenly believe that products can be made perfectly safe if enough money and time were focused on their design. This paper offers a proof of the safety theorem together with some of its applications.

  • Safety Definitions: Colloquial, Standards, Regulatory, Torts, Heuristic,
           and Quantitative

    • Authors: Ralph L. Barnett
      Pages: 54 - 60
      Abstract: Scholars of every stripe have confessed that they cannot define pornography; but they know it when they see it. This unsatisfactory state-of-affairs is trivial compared to defining safety. Safety presents cascading levels of subjectiveness each of which defies definition. The current definitions of safety disguise our ignorance and deprive us of both certainty and objectivity. Indeed, as the field of safety continues to exist in a “research-free zone” we are all trying to be the one-eyed man in the valley of the blind. This paper considers colloquial, legal, and technical definitions of safety; all are useful, none are satisfactory. Even worse, none of the definitions pass the idiomatic “laugh test.”

  • On the Safety Hierarchy and Hierarchy of Controls

    • Authors: Ralph L. Barnett
      Pages: 61 - 68
      Abstract: History reveals an ever-increasing caboodle of protective measures for assuring an acceptable level of safety for both new product designs and for the remediation of man-made and natural hazards. Some seventy years ago, safety professionals began to functionally categorize these safety tools and rank the categories according to their perceived effectiveness. At first, the resulting hierarchies were designated Safety Hierarchies; later updated versions are now referred to as Hierarchies of Controls. To characterize Hierarchies, sixty-six references were surveyed that were published after 1952. Each of these design recipes begin with the admonition “Eliminate the hazards.” All of the hierarchies were created using consensus or speculation, not research. We establish that the Safety Hierarchies and the Hierarchies of Controls are merely rules of thumb, not theorems. Generally, different hierarchies give rise to different designs. The principal strength of both Hierarchies is their replacement of the myth of colloquial safety as “freedom from harm” with a realistic technical definition of safety as an “acceptable level of risk” that is systematically achievable however tortuous.
