There currently exists an Apoptote (flattening of the curve), meaning we have not succeeded in eliminating the worst harm and fatalities despite all of this regulation. In fact, what modern safety science is showing, is that more regulation and compliance will not make us safer, more bureaucracy may actually be making us less safe. Much of this is associated with the on-going belief in older safety models presented by Heinrich in the safety dominos and pyramid, and also Reason with the Swiss Cheese model. These are linear cause-effect models that don’t hold true anymore.
