The traditional view is that building a robust, positive safety culture is complex, difficult, and takes a long time. But hold on! It doesn’t have to be that way!
Written in a highly engaging, accessible style that bypasses the usual technical jargon to deconstruct the mystery that surrounds what we have come to know as ‘safety culture’, From Accidents to Zero strips back the academic theory to provide a seductively simple but incredibly powerful practical guide to improving your safety culture right now.
Combining positive psychology and organizational behaviour with proven safety methodology and calling on the works of Heinrich, Reason, Dekker, Kahneman, Hollnagel, as well as Greek philosophy, Buddhism and much more, this book provokes thought and provides pragmatic guidance with over 80 new ideas for action that will not only reduce accidents but also save lives in your workplace today.
By switching your mindset from ‘preventing accidents‘ to ‘creating safety‘ you will gain the clarity to cut through the cultural mist and drive a significant, sustainable step change that will quickly bring your organization closer to your vision of zero accidents.
Has your organization already made good progress with safety? Or is stuck on a ‘performance plateau‘?
Are you starting out as a safety professional or are you a ‘seasoned old-hand‘?
Perhaps you’re a leader interested in making things safer in the workplace…
Whoever you are, wherever you may be, at whatever point in your journey to zero accidents you find yourself, with over 80 practical actions this book has something just for you.
