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.
Safety through design is not a precise science. Since it is not a “one size fits all” type of effort, it will require customization within your company. But, the basic concepts of early involvement in the design stage, careful evaluation of hazards and risk assessment are universally applicable.
Readers will find divergent viewpoints, which are acceptable, since there has been success with many different approaches to their application. This text is focused on providing significant insights into the concepts, and their potential integration and application in your operations. The material must be sorted, evaluated and massaged to produce an appropriate blend for your operations, since safety through design is not a “cookie cutter” practice.
