Description / Abstract:

Despite the fact that workplaces have implemented and followed new safety innovations and approaches, the majority of them have seen little, if any, significant progress in the reduction of accidental deaths and injuries. Changing the Workplace Safety Culture demonstrates that changing the way an organization views and practices safety will impact the behavior of all employees including executive and line managers. It delineates how safety culture change can be implemented and defines the roles of everyone in the safety culture, including management, employees, and unions and their members. Features of the book include:
  • Detailed explanations with many real-life examples of management principles and functions that need to be applied to bring about safety culture change
  • Step-by-step program to show how a safety management system is implemented
  • Descriptions of the roles of leadership, employees, and unions and their members in safety culture change
  • Discussions of the value of ongoing identification of workplace and worker risks
