Journal of Safety, Health & Environmental Research • VOLUME 10, NO. 1 • 2014 121 Editorial I am so honored to compose summaries about these remark- able articles in this issue of Journal of Safety Health and Environmental Research (JSHER). In the first article, the authors Yorio and Wachter devel- oped a theoretical argument regarding the important place that human-performance-focused safety and health (S&H) man- agement practices serve within the comprehensive safety and health management system. Within their article, the authors proposed 10 distinct but interrelated S&H-specific high-perfor- mance work practices (HPWPs) that might be used by orga- nizations to improve occupational S&H performance through human S&H performance. The authors hypothesized that the presence of individual S&H-HPWPs, as well as the system of S&H-HPWPs, would increase the task and team safety behav- iors relevant to work in an interdependent context and subse- quently reduce occupational injuries and illnesses. To execute the study, organizational managers provided in- formation to the researchers regarding the organizational struc- ture and the number of recordable and lost-time injuries and illnesses each group experienced. Using structural equation modeling software, the authors found support for a conceptual
