Abstract
This paper is based on a doctoral dissertation which tests whether a learning-curve phenomenon applies to accident experience in the petroleum industry; that is, whether accidents per units produced decrease as management gains production experience. By means of correlations, the author shows that accident-experience learning curves actually provide a more reliable and a more-easily-understood way to measure the effectiveness of a safety program.
