WE PUBLISH

Paul Balmert's, Principal, Balmert Consulting, bestselling book Alive & Well At The End Of The Day focuses on proven strategies and tactics that you can use to lead workers to safety.

“This book” Paul Balmert commented, “is primarily aimed at the members of management that have the greatest influence on workers—front-line supervisors. But it addresses the full spectrum of issues involved in getting people to work safely all the time, which also has a bearing on a company’s bottom line. And so it’s of interest to leaders at all levels of a company, from supervisors to company presidents and CEOs.” The book is made up of 274 pages in 22 chapters and includes illustrations to help communicate important points.

Industrial facilities supervisors, from front-line managers to CEOs, can depend on Alive & Well at the End of the Day for tested and proven management and leadership practices that ensure the safety of their workers. With more than thirty years of hands-on experience in the chemical industry, including front-line management, author Paul Balmert understands the challenges facing supervisors in industrial facilities.

His advice, based on firsthand experience, shows you how to identify and correct flaws in industrial practices. Moreover, he shows you how to lead by example, overcoming all obstacles that interfere with safety.

Rather than focus on theory, this book offers concrete what to do and how to do it strategies and tactics that enable you to: Recognize and capitalize on the moments when workers are most receptive to learning safety Discover whats really going on when you tour and inspect plant operations Engage in a helpful discussion with someone who is not following safety guidelines Understand the various types of risk involved in an industrial operation Implement a comprehensive strategy to manage and minimize risk.

Throughout the book, plenty of case studies and examples illustrate key challenges alongside step-by-step solutions. You'll also learn how to understand and leverage the psychology and motivations of your staff in order to fully implement safety practices and procedures. In short, with this book as your guide, you will be equipped and ready to lead your staff to safety.

The book, aimed at helping front-line supervisors in many industries protect those they lead from accidents and resulting injuries, is published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., a 203-year-old, New York-based publisher of books for academic, scientific, business and industry audiences (www.wiley.com).

WE WRITE

For the last fifteen years, we’ve published our Managing Safety Performance Newsletter to a loyal following of industrial leaders across the globe. It’s been our privilege – and pleasure – to share our take on important issues that bear on safety leadership. We’d like to think in its own small way, the Newsletter has made a contribution to making the world a safer place to work. As long as we have things to say, we’ll keep writing the Newsletter.

On the matter of safety meetings, we’ve decided to offer some help. Practical help. In the form of what we’re calling the Managing Safety Performance Newsflash. It’s a simple, one page communique on a subject that we think any leader can use in a discussion with followers. We do mean any leader and any crew, whether it’s the Front Line Leader and crew gathered around the tailgate of a pickup, or the Site Leader and the leadership team, gathered around the table in a conference room

Properly executed, those safety conversations can make a difference. Good execution starts with having a good topic. We’re fortunate: in our travels we get to see and learn about plenty of topics that make for great safety conversations.
