"Delivering Safety Excellence” gives safety and health professionals ideas, tools, confidence and courage to tackle whatever challenges confront them.
The author, Mike Williamsen, Ph.D, CSP, a former operations manager and authoritative safety turnaround expert, employs an entertaining, ongoing fictional narrative (based on factual events) involving a safety professional and his mentor confronting a safety culture turnaround necessity in the pro’s company.
Dr. Williamsen tackles excellence barriers including the injury plateau; the production push to “get ‘er done;” and the trap of complacency. The book describes numerous necessary basic culture truths and tools used throughout this realistic safety culture turnaround story. The book ends with a wiser safety pro, a culture of improving excellence, and the author’s call action: it’s time to move safety beyond its traditional, tired, low-performing reactive approach.
The combination of very readable, real-world safety storytelling and a set of specific, practical culture turnaround tools make “Delivering Safety Excellence” the best, most unique safety culture book I’ve read.
