Learning from our own experiences and those of others is not just smart but beneficial in preventing at-risk conditions within our work environment. “Don’t let this happen to you” stories are obviously useful, but only if they reach us in time to make a difference.
To make sure important lessons reach all who might benefit, NCSU engages in an electrical lessons-learned process in which we circulate educational accounts of accidents, injuries and near misses at NCSU, Department of Energy (DOE) complexes, and private industry.
When planning work, browse through either of these valuable stores of information. And if you have a lesson you think useful for others, contact the NCSU Safety Engineer.
