Accident triangle

Example of an accident triangle
Example of an accident triangle
  • ... that the accident triangle (pictured) was a cornerstone of 20th-century industrial health and safety philosophy? "The accident triangle, developed by H.W. Heinrich in the 1930s, is a fundamental cornerstone of safety philosophy ... This principle has driven the approach and techniques used by all companies actively engaged in reducing injuries in the workforce for over 70 years." (Anderson & Denkl 2010)
    • ALT1:... that the 1931 accident triangle theory (pictured) proposed a link between the number of minor accidents and those that led to serious injury? "The accident triangle, developed by H.W. Heinrich in the 1930s, is a fundamental cornerstone of safety philosophy which postulates that there is a numerical relationship between unsafe acts, minor injuries, and major (fatal) injuries." (Anderson & Denkl 2010)
    • ALT2:... that in 1931 Herbert William Heinrich proposed that there was a ratio of 300 no-injury accidents for every one that resulted in serious harm?"Heinrich’s accident triangle or pyramid: In a group of 330 accidents, 300 will result in no injuries, 29 will result in minor injuries and one will result in a major injury." (Johnson 2011)

  • Symbol question.svg Article is new enough, long enough, well referenced, and is neutral. Those sources I have been able to review support the article and hooks, and avoid plagiarism. Hooks are appropriate; any would be fine, although my preference would be for the original or ALT1, as ALT2 hides the title of article unnecessarily. QPQ complete. Image is not clear at small size as text is illegible, would be good to translate text to English as the image's licence permits this. I do have a concern about the image; is it actually Heinrich's original, in which case it may be under copyright restrictions and if not, this should be detailed in its licensing; or is it a depiction of the concept, in which case the caption in the article should make this clear?

Hi Warofdreams, thanks for the review. More than happy for this to run without an image. The triangle shown is a modern (and freely licensed) depiction of Heinrich's theory - you can see his original here. Unfortunately I lack the technical skills to provide a translation of this image or the French one also used in the article. Hopefully somebody more competent will notice them and provide a translation - Dumelow (talk) 10:31, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
Symbol confirmed.svg That's great, thanks, the updated caption makes it clear. While translations would be great, they're not required for DYK, so I'm happy to approve this with either the original hook or ALT1, but without the picture. Do you have a preference? If not, I'll leave it up to whoever is putting the update together. Warofdreams talk 15:57, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, no preference on hook - Dumelow (talk) 16:33, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
