Building Safety Commitment takes you through a set of skill-building experiences aimed to improve your dedication to safety at work. This book helps you increase your motivation toward safety, improve your “situational awareness” so you are better at detecting hazards and handling distractions, and gives you tools for dealing with obstacles that impede safe action.
Building Safety Commitment is based on over 20 years of scientific evidence, and you can integrate the applications from this book into the safety processes you already have in place with your organization. Ultimately, by the end of the book, you will be acting in the direction of what is most important to you even in the presence of obstacles!
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING:
Dr. Moran has given the workplace safety community an innovative and unique set of skill-building exercises and instructions for making and sustaining a personal commitment to safety. The approach is fresh, unconventional and engaging. Many readers will not look at the word “commitment” ever the same again after reading Dr. Moran's text.

Workplace safety may not sound like an exciting topic but I kid you not, this book grabs you from the first pages. It’s the “honest work” of an internationally known behavioral expert who walks you through how to deal with your emotions and thoughts, while focusing on what is important to you right here and now. When cast that way, safety is no longer a matter of compliance with the wagging fingers of authorities – it is a natural expression of your own caring for yourself and others. Caring commitments are anything but dull. Highly recommended.
