Description / Abstract:

Safety Culture and Effective Safety Management is a compilation of readings about safety cultures and how they function in specific organizations. This unprecedented compilation presents discussions on what safety culture is, what elements within organizations influence safety cultures, and a variety of both traditional and new methods to use to bring about positive culture change.

The volume encompasses research findings on corporate cultures and safety cultures, the safety myths that safety professionals must debunk, methods of measuring and motivating safety performance, and tips on organizing safety and health programs in small-to-large companies and national-to-international corporations. Many important industries are discussed: mining, refineries, shipping, chemical, manufacturing and advanced technologies. Perspectives are presented, including those of behavioralists, organized labor, safety professionals, academics and grassroots workers.
