Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book promised so much and from an author who defeinitely knows what he is talking about. I read the Management of Safety (Dr Valerie Sutherland) first and had high hopes that this book might expand on other approaches to behavioural safety. I can't quite figure out who the intended audience is because the way the text is broken down into lots of titles with short sections of text suggests it is aimed at beginners but the complex terminology suggests that you need to have a grounding in this subject before you read the book. I very nearly gave up on the book part-way through the first chapter because I found it so disjointed. This appears to be a collection of other people's theories that might be useful as a single reference if you are writing a thesis on behavioural safety but not a huge help if you want to use it to achieve improvement.
