With annual cost in excess of $150 billion from workplace related illnesses and injuries, any knowledge that can reduce this burden contributes to the overall welfare of the work force and business performance. Yet, there are many key areas of opportunities that have not yet been discussed in the literature, such as approaches to improving contractor safety management and innovative approaches to shared learning in health and safety. Until now.

Built upon practical principles and knowledge derived from the authors’ field experience, Safety Management: A Comprehensive Approach to Developing a Sustainable System provides recommendations and practical solutions for improving health and safety in the workplace. The authors recognize and promote workplace health and safety as essential for sustained long-term profitability of all organizations, regardless of the industry. The book emphasizes the potential for sustained improvements in workplace health and safety from understanding:

  • How business environment trends can guide approaches to managing health and safety in the workplace
  • The importance of safety management systems (SMS)
  • The benefits of integrating process safety management (PSM) into your business practices
  • How leadership commitment and shared learning in health and safety can improve the workplace and that leveraging shared learning in safety helps you avoid repeat and similar incidents
  • The importance of leveraging contractor safety management to generate real improvements in workplace safety
  • Proactively identifying gaps in organizational SMS and addressing them by using audits as a collaborative process

The authors explore different leadership styles and detail their pros and cons in the workplace. Compiling this wealth of knowledge into a single book provides a holistic approach to upgrading the way health and safety is managed in the workplace. It shows you how to take your organization from ordinary to world-class safety performance.
