"I have been teaching and conducting research on safety culture for the last thirty years. However, this is the first time I came across such a lucidly written 'manual' on how to initiate, implement, operationalize, nurture, and sustain safety culture in an organization. This book ought to be assigned as a must read for leaders of safety-sensitive industries, most notably for its seminal conclusion, 'Who Packs Your Parachute?'"

"When it comes to the essence of safety leadership, James Schultz and Brian Fielkow have nailed it with this book. As a NASA astronaut, I lived through the terrible days of the Challenger disaster and know what it's like to bury friends and colleagues and console their survivors . . . and to witness the destruction of a truly great team. And therein lies a critical message. If it can happen to a team that put six missions on the moon and returned the astronaut crews safely to Earth, it can happen to any team in any industry. Knowing this vulnerability to every organization, the authors have crafted this brilliant blueprint that leaders can employ to build a safety program that isn't just a value statement on a web page, but something alive and enduring within each team member. No leader, particularly those whose teams operate in hazardous environments, should be without this book."

"Jim Schultz and Brian Fielkow are the leading professional practitioners in how to create a culture of positive safety in organizations today. The authors are not only knowledgeable of the fundamentals, but they also have years of experience successfully implementing these practices and philosophies in organizations of varied sizes and missions. As a career safety practitioner, I can attest to the value of this publication. It provides an effective road map on how to achieve world-class safety performance, zero safety failures, and transformation of your organization's morale, financial results, and customer satisfaction. This is a must read for anyone who is interested in benchmarking, assessing, and improving their organization's overall safety culture."

"Trust and respect are necessary to truly inspire and engage a workforce to share their best ideas. I've found that people are compelled to share their best when they feel safe, both figuratively and literally. In "Leading People Safely: How to Win on the Business Battlefield," Jim and Brian brilliantly point out how building a safety culture can help world-class organizations of all sizes perform to their fullest potential."
―Jim Whitehurst, President and CEO, Red Hat
From the Author
Having the opportunity to collaborate on this book was one we both immediately wanted to take on. So often we see safety pushed to the backburner, which ultimately can have great costs--from minor accidents to the loss of a life. Inspired by our own experiences, we decided to share what we've seen works--and what doesn't work--in an effort to inspire, motivate and give others the tools they need to create a world-class safety culture.
