Publisher's Summary

Workplace safety is failing. Despite better procedures now in place on the job, people are still getting hurt. The problem lies in our thinking. We must shift the focus from rules to relationships.

In PeopleWork, author and safety management consultant Kevin Burns presents a people-centered system for the management of the safety program in the workplace. He lays out the practical, how-to steps that frontline supervisors and safety people can master. This promotes a relationship-based culture focused on mentoring, coaching, and inspiring teams. It is an approach that ultimately improves employee productivity and allows everyone to achieve their personal goals and the goals of their company. With PeopleWork, you can raise workplace safety to a level where it actually works.

Safety and leadership in one

This book could have been written in half the time. But it included leadership skills along with safety leadership ideas which I appreciated. Even though it was easy to listen to, it gave such good ideas and thoughts that I found my mind wandering with what I had just listen to. I had to re-listen which is good not a complaint. I would recommend this book.

A must read for Safety Professional and Supervisor

If you want to advance your safety program forget the "old" thinking of needing Top Management Support, get this book and you will have a clear path to safety excellence. Kevin Burns gives it to you straight and from the heart. If you want to leave a legacy when you move on, this but will provide you with the tools necessary to be a true leader. MRW
