“Managers feel baffled by the complexity of OHS systems and regulations. What this book says will come as a breath of fresh air to them. There are so many myths to be debunked; importantly, managers really do not need to let fear of most unlikely legal consequences be a key driver of their decisions. Given the background and credibility of the authors, managers should see this as a strong signal to look again with confidence at their leadership in safety.”
