Although often taken for granted, safety doesn’t just happen. It requires a deep understanding of the principles of safety culture that then must be applied in all of your actions. Safety Management in a Competitive Business Environment discusses the meaning of the culture of safety in all areas of industrial manufacturing, focusing on risk management preventative measures. It explores the new and emerging risks and underlines the significance of effective education methods as prerequisites for acquiring appropriate risk management skills.
The book provides an integrated and systematic point of view on the field of occupational health and safety management, safety of machines and machinery, and certain complex technologies. It touches on civil safety as a part of safety culture in the sense of national culture—an area that is now becoming very topical. The author details the risk assessment methods available and the many factors that come into play such as deterioration due to ageing, construction issues, and workplace noise, to name just a few. He also covers the importance of education for risk management professionals of all levels and the integration of safety related to industrial technology and civil security into comprehensive safety and security.
The culture of safety provides space for adopting principles leading to risk minimization or, in some areas, risk elimination. It creates a legal basis for obligatory application of risk management methods adjusted to particular work environment, technology, and machinery. This book demonstrates how risk management systems form component parts of comprehensive managerial systems, especially in integration with quality management systems. It gives you the tools necessary for systematic management of traditional and emerging risks in the man–machine–environment system, especially in industrial technologies.

"… highlights the HSE challenges faced by the current machine -business environment that is characterized by an ageing workforce. … My personal view is the knowledge provided in this book elevates normally subdued issues of the workplace to levers where business must consider its integration into its business practices. More importantly, it provokes HSE professionals to be more aware of the often avoided HSE issues of the workplace that become larger hazards and risks over time."
