Incident management and safety

Incident management improves safety and reduces delay. In principle, delay can be measured such that it can be used to estimate the benefits of incident management. Safety, on the other hand, is much harder to measure. So, the benefits of incident management in improving safety are difficult to quantify. Since safety is an important driving force behind incident management, the relation between incident management and safety remains for future research.
