A Word From The Author

“It's my fondest hope that this book produces greater synergy and more realistic assessment of the risks and mitigative methods across the spectrum of interested parties: the public, regulators, operators, and equipment and support suppliers. A focus on achievable goals, objectives, and meaningful performance assessments could improve operation and safety management for all involved."
