              Organising for Safety: How structure creates culture
               

              Organising for Safety: How structure creates culture (EPUB ebook)

              By Hopkins, Andrew

              How do we change the culture of an organisation? The culture change industry assumes that this is best done with educational campaigns - the hearts and minds approach. But this seldom works, because it does not come to terms with the real source of organisational culture - the wa...y the organisation is structured. This book explores just how organisational structure shapes culture. It shows how decentralized organisational structures allow profit and production to take precedence over safety, while centralised risk control is conducive to a culture of operational excellence. The argument is based on case study material from the petroleum industry, the mining industry and even, the Australian Air Force. Drawing on the theory of high reliability organisations, and also on recent scandals in banking industry, the book concludes with some suggestions as to how company boards can increase the effectiveness of the risk specialists in their organisations. Andrew Hopkins has written widely about the causes of major accidents in the oil, gas and mining industry, as well as in aviation and rail transport. This latest book highlights the ways in which organisational cultures can be transformed to ensure that corporations fulfil their social obligations.

              Making Safety Work (PDF ebook)

              By Hopkins, Andrew

              * Who is responsible for workplace safety? * Does self-regulation work? * Does safety pay? Managers are often reluctant to commit to occupational health and safety despite proven benefits to employees and the organisation. In Making Safety Work, Andrew Hopkins looks at the reason...s behind the reluctance and argues that the current policy of emphasizing safety pays' is not effective. Rather, it is the threat of personal prosecution that most impresses employers. Based on interviews with Australian managers and occupational health and safety officers, Making Safety Work includes extensive case material from a wide variety of organisations. Hopkins also outlines strategies which OHS officers and representatives can use to gain management cooperation and build a safety culture within their organisation. Making Safety Work is essential reading for occupational health and safety practitioners, as well as students of management, organizational behaviour, business regulation and social policy.
