Unlike most books on this subject, Productive Safety Management, described in this book, integrates occupational health and safety, human resource management, environmental management, and engineering to provide a whole-business approach to effective safety management.

The book helps companies to reduce and manage risk by providing, analysing and improving systems in place within the company. It also looks at how external factors can affect company decision making and provides a tool to make sure that a health and safety management system is strategically aligned, appropriately resourced, and that it maximises employee commitment. Chapters on human resource management explore cultural issues and explain how to gain commitment to company objectives.

The book has been written for managers and supervisors working in hazardous industries, OHS practitioners, undergraduate and postgraduate students.
