Roadmap Toward a Holistic Safety Culture
OSH is too often considered a functional area or a center of specific expertise, and OSH managers see themselves too often and too much as a capsulated competence center. Such an approach to OSH will always fall far short of what is needed for a successful, holistic, proactive and preventive safety culture.
