From Accidents to Zero by Andrew Sharman

The traditional view is that building a robust, positive safety culture is complex, difficult, and takes a long time. But hold on! It doesn’t have to be that way!

Written in a highly engaging, accessible style that bypasses the usual technical jargon to deconstruct the mystery that surrounds what we have come to know as ‘safety culture’, From Accidents to Zero strips back the academic theory to provide a seductively simple but incredibly powerful practical guide to improving your safety culture right now. Combining positive psychology and organizational behaviour with proven safety methodology and calling on the works of Heinrich, Reason, Dekker, Kahneman, Hollnagel, as well as Greek philosophy, Buddhism and much more, this book provokes thought and provides pragmatic guidance with over 80 new ideas for action that will not only reduce accidents but also save lives in your workplace today.
