Safety performance is a complicated issue, particularly in high-hazard environments, where time and other constraints, as well as impacts can be exaggerated. From an organizational and business perspective, safety and production/performance are often seen as competing goals.Team Leadership in High–Hazard Environments recognizes these difficulties and constraints and proposes an approach to safety leadership in which safety and organizational performance are inextricably linked; one that addresses safety from both the systems and human factors perspectives.This is an important book that draws on techniques and models developed from crew resource management, human factors, risk management as well as more traditional HR management disciplines.
