Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by world-renowned health and safety researcher E. Scott Geller, Working Safe: How to Help People Actively Care for Health and Safety, Second Edition presents science-based and practical approaches to improving attitudes and behavior for achieving an injury-free work environment. This book teaches proactive applications of behavior-based psychology for improving health and safety. Relevant theory and principles are clearly explained and practical step-by-step procedures are detailed. Dr. Geller's anecdotal and non-academic writing style makes the book fun and easy to read.

This research-based text is completely updated and expanded from the 1996 edition. It includes three new chapters: one on behavioral safety analysis, another on intervening with supportive conversation, and the third on how to promote high performance teamwork. Thus, this second edition continues to provide the practical advice safety leaders rely on.

Working Safe: How to Help People Actively Care for Health and Safety supplies the research and theory needed to customize effective behavior-based procedures and tools in your workplace. The information and examples provide health and safety professionals with behavioral science methods capable of enhancing safety awareness, reducing at-risk behavior, and facilitating ongoing participation in safety-related activities.

Sue Fisher, March 12, 2012 (view all comments by Sue Fisher)
This is a great common sense book. Actually, the title could be Working Safe, subtitle: How to Help People Actively Care for "OTHERS," instead of the "Health and Safety". The book is filled with really wonderful observation on the human mind and behavior. It is an excellent guide for good management practices and managers and company executives would be well served by reading -- and following! this book.
The only drawback is its price. At $74 (paperback) it is selling like a technical book, but priced closer to $20, it would be a widely used book in business schools or anywhere that cares about improving their management and workers health, efficiency, attitude and interactions, as well as being safer in the workplace.
