One Percent Safer: The Book

What is it all about?

This book is unique.  It’s a ‘handbook’ in the simplest sense – to help you, inform you, inspire you, to empower you to take action.  It’s an agent provocateur to encourage you to think – just a little bit more – about safety, about your people, and to help you lead forward by creating safety not just trying to prevent accidents.  

There are 137 chapters, each is one page in length, and each one crystallizing one idea that will make your organization one percent safer. The book is published in full colour, printed on heavy-weight FSC-certified bond paper, with lovely satin-finish covers, there’s a total of 252 pages.  

Who’s involved?

142 of the world’s most cutting-edge thought-leaders: business executives, top academics, policy-makers (and breakers!), and some of the most important global authorities including the World Health Organisation, the United Nations, the International Labour Organisation, the British Safety Council, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management, the Institute of Leadership & Management, the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health, as well as global legends in their own right – including Sidney Dekker, Scott Geller, Gerd Gigerenzer, Marshall Goldsmith, Leandro Herrero, Gert Jan Hofstede, Erik Hollnagel, Andrew Hopkins, Patrick Hudson, Evelyn Kortum, Dianne Parker, Edgar Schein, Paul Slovic, Jukka Takala – and many more.

The contributions are compiled, edited, and introduced by Prof Dr Andrew Sharman, best-selling author, President of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) and Chairman of the Board of the Institute of Leadership & Management.

Is it for me?

This is the book for anyone that’s been told to follow the rules… and then wondered if there’s something else they could do.  

It’s for business leaders, managers, supervisors, safety & health professionals that don’t want people to get hurt in their organizations and workplaces.  

Above all, it’s a book for those who truly want to make a difference.
