Creative Safety Solutions, Second Edition stimulates creative thinking by identifying some of the new programs, new ideas, and new solutions being tried by other professionals in the field. By thinking outside of the box, the book will help you create new ways to improve the workplace.
New Chapters in the Second Edition:
In this book, safety expert Thomas Schneid has assembled a number of creative solutions that have been tried and tested and have worked for many organizations. These are not all of the great ideas and solutions developed in the safety and loss prevention area—all of the ideas have not already been used. These ideas are only the tip of the iceberg, and the author challenges you to find new and better ways of doing your job within the safety and loss prevention function. These creative solutions to safety and loss prevention problems can help spur you to think about your activities and job duties and find new and creative ways of advancing the safety and loss prevention field.
"… a thought provoking book which addresses the need for Safety Professionals to "think outside the box" and become both innovative and imaginative. … This second edition of Creative Safety Solutions provides additional chapters with explanations to assist the Safety Professional in meeting today's workplace safety demands."

The aim of this series is to develop books to address the myriad of unique topics which are encompassed within the areas of responsibility of a safety professional. The scope of the series is broad addressing traditional occupational safety and health topics as well as emerging and correlating topic areas such as ergonomics, security, labor, school safety, employment, workplace violence, and other topics. Safety professionals often assume a broad spectrum of responsibilities, depending on the organization, which go beyond the traditional safety professional’s role. This series should become the "one stop" source for safety professionals to locate texts on traditional as well as emerging and correlating subjects related to the safety and health function.
