In my opinion, as safety professionals, in many cases we are storytellers. We help employees, by telling stories, with hope that they will remember why they should report hazards and/or help reduce injuries. On the other side, when we are talking to our leadership team we are usually telling a story about how an injury occurred and the corrective actions that will be implemented to resolve the issue.
With that said, I would like to introduce a FREE online class entitled "The Future Of Storytelling" to my email group. I am taking this class to understand the history of storytelling. This is a very good class and I would encourage everyone to at least listen to the 1st class to gauge your interest.
What intrigued me about this class is a statement on their website “Are you interested in the mechanics of current fiction formats? Do you want to know how stories are told? Do you want to analyze, understand, contextualize and create stories and narratives?” To check this class out or enroll in the class click here.
As always I would be interested in your input.

Many years ago these to safety professionals met at a meeting and quickly became friends. These to safety professionals had different backgrounds but had some interest in the same subject. One safety professional was from risk management were the other safety professional spent his career for many years in manufacturing. It was a long before these professionals started to collaborate on different projects. These projects were developing articles for various magazines. Along the way, you develop a book entitled “Job Hazard Analysis: A guide for voluntary compliance and beyond”
I am giving away two copies of the new book to my email subscribers. If you are interested, all you have follow the instructions at the end of the video. I will be announcing the winners by October 31, 2013.
If interested, you can review the book details of “Safety Culture – An Innovated Leadership Approach” on Amazon.
I have a special offer at the end of the Safety Culture Video for all professionals.
The book was established that it takes a multi-level approach to sustain the safety culture and safety management system by the following:
Acceptance of the fact that as a leader you may have been given the responsibility for managing the safety process for your organization or have been tasked with assisting in building a process. It is important that you understand that you intend to go goal is to get others to buy into your vision of a strong safety culture.
Building a network of support and communication that extends through the entire organization. This network if develop properly will allow you to quickly respond to any type of issues and concerns.
It is important that you become the memory of the organization were you will gather hazard and associated risk data using your network. The idea is to analyze and prioritize this data for corrective actions. Your library, contacts and information system should place you in the position of being a "go to" professional for any type of issue. This is a continuous effort requiring open and rapid communications.
As the leader you must outline the safety management system structure for the organization so that the structure is complimentary and since into the organization.
Unless the Safety Professional understands these elements that will make the safety management system and safety culture successful, probability for long term success will be restricted.
