Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is so full of information and practical suggestions that you will be constantly highlighting important passages or taking copious notes on new things that you can try in your own workplace...

"This is a terrific book for beginners, students but most of all those managers who think they know it all. This book reminds us all clearly that a safety culture is attainable by cutting through a lot of the sales spin, and it provides us with the information and tools to do so.

...use this book as a good skeleton on which to hang your customized safety management system, or safety culture initiatives.

-Kevin Jones, Editor, Safety at Work Magazine, July 2003

Book Description

Described how to implement an effective safety culture that will lead to the desired goal of zero incidents in the work place.

Overall the text is quite good in explaining safety management concepts which are highly effective.

I believe it would make a good text for a safety management course.

The book gets into some topics that aren't needed to explain the concepts presented making the text larger than necessary. There is some redundancy of information in the way the text is structured / written.

I purchased additional copies for clients.

Definitely a worthwhile read for safety managers without a business systems background or managers needing to understand how to insert safety management aspects into an existing performance management process. A good review of some basic concepts that many fail to properly implement.

Author Roughton's book is remarkably clear and concise, affording a comprehensive perspective on the context and content of an effective safety culture.

Those interested in creating such a culture will understand that the emphasis on safety must become an integral part of the organization from top management to the operating worker. This book describes the path to that end, as opposed to simply describing a tool to be used and set aside.

I work in claims & risk management for an insurance broker. I purchased this book for myself four years ago. It quickly became my Bible for helping accounts develop sustainable safety cultures. I have purchased at least three additional copies for people responsible for safety programs at three of our accounts. In the opinion of all of us, the info in this book is useful, immediate, practical.

The book is filled with summaries, sample forms, detailed chapters. Being somewhat modular, I frequently pick and choose certain sections for certain accounts depending on where the account is on the spectrum of safety program and safety culture evolution. Very easy to use; in depth; flows logically.

I strongly recommend it as a primary reference for developing and strengthening safety programs and sustainable safety cultures.

Format: Hardcover
What the authors of this book provided, whether they realized it or not, was a "blue-print plan" for a new safety advisor, director, manager, or other safety professional, to get a safety program up and running from scratch for any organization. Especially chapter 10. If I would have had chapter 10 to follow as a guide when I was a new Safety Advisor, I would have had the instructions I so desperately needed at the time to help build the safest work environment possible. I had safety in the heart, but not the means to establish a safety plan. Simply put, one can take the Safety Culture book and build the perfect safety program for an organization. The book is a step by step blue-print. - Tommy Bristow

"Developing an Effective Safety Culture" has made a significant difference in the safety culture in the facility where I currently work. The book was clear and concise in helping lead management in the direction that needed to be taken to change the culture in the "right" direction. Safety goals and objectives have since been achieved, using the book's guidance, that have never been done in the forty year history of this manufacturing facility. I would recommend this book to anyone in the safety field or anyone who has a management role or anyone who has a stalemate at their facility and wants new ideas on how to change their safety culture for the better.

I bought this book earlier in my safety career and found it very helpful identifying the key things needed to begin a safety culture. It helped me develop the programs needed first, always a difficult choice to decide upon. Even as a seasoned professional, I refer to this book to ensure my programs meet the criteria outlined in this book. A book every entry level to mid-level safety professional should own.
