The Management of Safety: The behavioural approach to changing organisations
Valerie J Sutherland, Peter J Makin and Charles J Cox
The challenge to improve safety at work remains a key concern of many organisations, especially as traditional approaches to safety in organisations have not had the anticipated impact of reducing accident rates. As this book shows, existing methods of attempting to enhance safety performance have very limited efficacy.
Following a review of the main theories underlying safety management and their application to developing safe behaviour, it provides an introduction to the behaviour-based approach to safety management and quality improvement. It also incorporates useful examples, illustrations and practical applications that show the need for this approach.
