Techniques of Safety Management: A Systems Approach
The fourth edition of Techniques of Safety Management provides techniques that managers can use to create an effective behavior-based safety management program, especially in the areas of measurement and accountability. The author also discusses proactive and reactive system elements necessary to implement such a system. Proactive elements are defined as: changing behavior; changing physical conditions; changing the management systems; and using ergonomic principles to design a healthier and more productive environment. Reactive elements include accident investigation and recordkeeping.
This book is directed at safety professionals, industry specialists, part-time safety specialists in industry, line managers in industry and private consultants. It is also useful as a supplementary text for students in undergraduate and graduate safety programs.
