Alive and Well at the End of the Day
Practical book showing professionals the “what to dos” and “how to dos” for effective safety leadership
The Second Edition of Alive and Well at the End of the Day provides industrial leaders in operations with practical solutions to the tough safety leadership challenges they must manage. The book describes in detail the nature of those challenges (what makes them that tough) and offers proven best practices to successfully deal with them.
The practices described in the book come from the author’s first-hand observation of leaders in operations who were successful in leading and managing safety performance. These best practices are defined and described in detail, allowing the reader to immediately and successfully put them into practice.
In addition to providing “what to do” and “how to do that” for effective safety leadership, the book also explains “how it works” and “why to do it that way.” By taking this approach, the book provides deeper insight and understanding in addition to effective practices.
The book’s contents are organized in a way that allows the reader the ability to match up chapters with specific challenges they are facing.
In Alive and Well at the End of the Day, readers can expect to find discussion on:
- The practice of leadership, Moments of High Influence, Managing By Walking Around, and following all the rules, all the time
- Recognizing hazards and managing risk, behavior, consequences, and attitude, the power of good questions, and making change happen
- Managing accountability, safety meetings worth having, managing safety suggestions, creating the culture you want, and investing in training
- Understanding what went wrong, measuring safety performance, managing safety dilemmas, leading from the middle, and common mistakes managers make
Leaders in industrial operations responsible for leading and managing safety performance, from CEOs to frontline leaders, can use Alive and Well at the End of the Day, in conjunction with the included study guide, to understand and implement a powerful process to improve the supervisor’s practice of safety leadership.
