Quality, Behavior and the Bottom Line

This book is a must-read for anyone who has implemented a quality improvement initiative but has not achieved or sustained the desired results. It describes the element that is commonly overlooked by many quality processes; the failure to specifically identify the critical-to-quality behaviors needed to improve quality and to sustain the quality improvement initiative.

Dysfunctional Practices That Kill Your Safety Culture

A man finds himself on the top step of a step ladder; a woman removes the guard to her machine; a worker is not wearing her safety glasses in the plant; a roustabout uses the wrong sized clamp instead of retrieving the right tool from the supply truck; a supervisor teaches a new worker to take short cuts; a mechanic climbs on top of the active machine to find the oil leak. Why do these folks do these things? Is it because they are stupid?

Building Safety Commitment

Building Safety Commitment takes you through a set of skill-building experiences aimed to improve your dedication to safety at work. This book helps you increase your motivation toward safety, improve your “situational awareness” so you are better at detecting hazards and handling distractions, and gives you tools for dealing with obstacles that impede safe action.
