Pressure from consultants, insurers, trainers or those supporting National & International Standards, seem to create the feeling that somehow you haven’t done enough to ensure people are safe yet. Of course they have vested interest in trying to sell you solutions that you may not necessarily need. Then there is the challenge many enlightened boards are wrestling with; how do you move beyond mere legal compliance without making things too complicated and costly or by inadvertently going too far?
In many disciplines getting the basics right can be very powerful in achieving great performance and health & safety is no different. This book is packed with ideas that will help any organisation to ‘get the basics right’. It is the direct experience of the authors that these ideas are applicable to all industries, all operational circumstances and in many different countries. It contains simple and powerful messages that can transform performance and help to create a positive organisational health & safety culture. It is a ‘how to’ handbook that has evolved from real world experience.
Being risk-led and evidence-driven delivers business benefit and keeps people safe.
