Safe By Accident? Take the Luck out of Safety - Leadership Practices that Build a Sustainable Safety Culture
Despite decades of improvements in occupational safety, avoidable incidents still occur daily across all industries. Recent catastrophic events in the Gulf of Mexico and the mines of West Virginia shine a blinding spotlight on the failures of safety leadership.
Moving beyond finger pointing, behavioral safety experts and authors, Dr. Judy L. Agnew and Dr. Aubrey C. Daniels, deliver leaders a powerful message with clear calls to action in this data-based, practical approach to ensuring organizations are safe by design, not Safe by Accident.
Agnew and Daniels reveal how behavioral science can help safety professionals and leaders foster a company-wide culture of safety. Starting with the seven common safety leadership practices that don t work (and what to do instead) to broader and more strategic recommendations that leaders can incorporate to create a high-performance safety culture, this book is essential for leaders who want to improve safety in their organization.
