A 2-day fatality prevention forum was held in late October 2012 to examine the nature and cause of fatalities in the workplace and recommended prevention strategies. It was a natural extension of the 2007 Fatality Prevention Forum (Cekada, Janicak & Ferguson, 2009). The 2012 forum had these objectives:
1) Identify practical approaches a facility can use to develop a risk profile.
2) Recognize the most effective leadership styles and organizational attributes necessary for a fatality prevention effort, including (but not limited to) training, root-cause analysis and employee engagement.
3) Determine the role of human performance concepts in preventing fatalities, especially as it relates to human-systems integration and the recognition/elimination of error precursors.
4) Evaluate the influence of a person’s perception of risk, the required mental and physical aspects of the task, latent conditions and performance modes as they relate to fatality prevention.
5) Discover best practices, innovative technological concepts and tools that have the potential to transform the ability to identify, assess, mitigate or eliminate the risk of fatal and life-altering injuries.
6) Identify areas of future safety re-search and public policy that could drive significant improvement in the ability to predict and prevent fatalities.
These objectives were met through a series of presentations, best practices showcases and breakout sessions. The breakout sessions served to document actual best practices used to prevent fatalities and serious injuries (FSIs) as they relate to one of these areas.

Some of the OnePetro partner societies have developed subject- specific wikis that may help.
|PetroWiki was initially created from the seven volume Petroleum Engineering Handbook (PEH) published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
|The SEG Wiki is a useful collection of information for working geophysicists, educators, and students in the field of geophysics. The initial content has been derived from : Robert E. Sheriff's Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition.
