The “It Works” book launch
The book “It Works” is co-authored by Brian Darlington and Dr Robert Long, and focuses on the importance of moving some of the focus move away from the traditional safety approach and practices the skills and principles of Social Psychology of Risk.
It highlights the importance of shifting the focus from traditional risk and safety to one that considers the psychological as well as cultural aspects. As mentioned a couple of times in the book, “There is no need to throw the baby out with the bath water”. However, to make a difference companies need to humanise their approach to risk and safety.
This is a book about practical ways of improving the way organisations tackle risk and safety as if persons are central in all that is done. Whilst the book spends some time sharing what doesn’t work in risk and safety, it doesn’t get stuck on problems, but rather sets out SPoR methods in which change for the better can make a difference to organisations.
The book is being launched in Europe and Australia and can be ordered through spor.com.au, by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or purchasing it directly through the store...
