Too often, supervisory safety performance suffers for a variety of reasons, many attributable to middle and upper management. In Safety Supervision, Second Edition, Dan Petersen provides assessment techniques and supervisory and management guidelines developed in years of practice as a top industry safety management consultant. This book will both broaden the supervisor’s safety skill set and provide practical, result-oriented and measurable improvement in such crucial supervisory activities as investigating for cause and inspecting for hazards. The author goes to the next level by explaining how proven coaching and motivational techniques, applied to supervisory safety practices, combine to produce a “safety culture” at all levels of the work force.
