The link between improving safety and corporate culture is made very clearly in this latest work. The behaviours of management are stressed as a major influence on culture and hence safety. A welcome addition.

Another author who "gets it". Safety management systems are business management systems. Leadership and a strong culture to support those systems are required for excellence. It's not rocket science - it's the science of human behavior and organizational culture change. Yet how many times have you seen a "safety program of the month" or the same incident trends occurring year after year with the accompanying knee-jerk reactions on the part of management wondering why the "safety "program" isn't working?
Any organization with an interest in achieving organizational excellence--and with it, safety excellence--should make this book and the Roughton & Mercurio title " Developing an Effective Safety Culture" required reading. Every safety professional should include both books in their library.
I purchased 3 copies after reading this text, and sent them to current clients struggling with their lack of a safety culture. I cannot speak highly enough about the well researched, science based approach to real world business (which includes safety) performance and improvement.

One of the best safety books I have read. Clear, logical and instructs how to drive behavioral changes in leadership.

Unless you are a PHD and can't sleep, I don't suggest this book to anyone.
