Leading with Safety (Hardcover)
 A Behavior-Based Approach
By: Thomas R. Krause

Leaders significantly impact organizational culture through what they choose to focus on and how they go about doing the things they do. That is why companies with identical safety initiatives often have vastly different results. In his new book Leading with Safety, Dr. Thomas R. Krause--chairman of Behavioral Science Technology, Inc.--poses the question, "What does it take to be a great safety leader?" Building on years of research and experience in the field, he answers the question with a comprehensive new model that defines the practices, tools and systems essential to creating an injury-free workplace, including the role of employees at each level, special considerations for coaching the senior executive leader and the two crucial aspects of human performance that every leader needs to know. In the book's foreword, former OSHA Administrator John Henshaw says, "Any organization interested in establishing an injury- and illness-free workplace can benefit from taking stock in the ideas, data and systems described in this book."
