The Study Guide is designed as a teaching aid to be used in conjunction with the book Alive and Well at the End of the Day: The Supervisor's Guide to Managing Safety in Operations, written by Paul D. Balmert. The book is designed to teach front-line supervisors of workers in a wide range of industries how to help and guide their employees to understand the risks involved in the various aspects of their work, and how to cope with those risks and to plan and execute their jobs in ways that can help eliminate accidents.
Created by the highly experienced training specialists of Balmert Consulting, the Study Guide utilizes training best practices to help affix the principals of Alive and Well at the End of the Day: The Supervisor's Guide to Managing Safety in Operations in the minds of the reader. The use of strategically-crafted questions—both at the beginning and end of each review session—allows the reader to work with the material and become more familiar with it.
The book was developed in response to multiple requests from readers of Alive and Well at the End of the Day: The Supervisor's Guide to Managing Safety in Operations who—enthusiastic about the messages and ideas in the book—wanted to find ways to make it become part of their operation’s safety culture and practices.
