Safety Occupational Health Managers have a key role in the work place. They not only ensure health and safety policies within a workplace environment, but help others to understand that part of the responsibility also falls to them. The responsibilities will differ depending on the workplace, but there are aspects which will always relate to all of them. Fred Fanning successfully addresses areas of weakness, and important methods which are often overlooked whilst enforcing key areas, and backing this up with facts and experience. Management Principles for Safety and Occupational Health Managers has many executable, even adaptable, points that if taken to heart can help improve the SOH's communication skills, problem solving skills, and organizational skills, whilst also helping to create a better working relationship with colleagues and give them the insight and knowledge to better utilise the tools at their disposal.
As a Safety and Occupational Health manager for over twenty years, it is safe to assume Fred Fanning knows his stuff. The training he has completed only served to enhance his own methods and applications. Management Principles for Safety and Occupational Health Managers is a collaboration of little known management methods, built from years of experience in seeing what has worked. Mr Fanning also offers the reader reference materials beneficial for traditional management, making this a well rounded resource. It is one of the few guides I have read that not only addresses methods, but behaviour as well. Management Principles for Safety and Occupational Health Managers will be a priceless addition to any workforce knowledge base, and is easily understandable to novice and expert alike. I enjoyed the fact it dealt not only with methods but the more psychological side of things as well, something many manuals such as this often overlook. Filled with useful information and easy to understand, this is a perfect resource for furthering your knowledge and honing your skills.
