Guidance for the beginning OHS professional
Our most prolific Guest Writer, George Robotham, is writing a book and would appreciate some input
Update: Sadly George passed away very suddenly in Sept 2013 – he finished his book and it has become an incredible legacy – GET A COPY HERE
I have set myself the task of writing a book in 2013 with a title something like the above. Some of you may have seen my earlier attempt on this blog a month or so back. My aim is to rework and build on this earlier publication. I am going to try to make the book easy to read and grounded in practice
Some of the topics I intend to cover include-
- George’s learning from practice
- Class 1 personal damage
- industry taxonomies
- Safety management systems
- Tool box meetings
- Writing policy and procedures
- Safety culture
- Zero harm
- Behaviour based safety
- Emergency management
- Safety leadership
- Accident investigation
- Tertiary OHS education
- Effective learning.
- Communications skills
- Interpersonal skills.
- Force-field analysis and other group problem solving techniques
- Management of organisational change
I would appreciate it if you could advise of your thoughts on my suggested topics and any other topics you would like to see included. For those of you who have been down a similar path you might like to give me some tips.
