A compelling exploration of how social norms and commercial culture impact the safety of organizational operations
In Impact of Societal Norms on Safety, Health, and the Environment: Case Studies in Society and Safety Culture, distinguished engineer Dr. Lee T. Ostrom delivers an authoritative treatment of the cultural, social, and human factors of safety cultures and issues in the workplace. The book offers readers compelling discussions of how those factors impact organizational operations and what contributes to making those impacts beneficial or detrimental.
The author provides numerous real-world case studies from North America and Europe that are relevant to a global audience, highlighting the central message of the book: that an organization that views its safety culture as unimportant could be setting itself up for a significant workplace accident.

* A thorough introduction to social norms that impact how commercial organizations treat issues of safety and workplace health
* In-depth safety culture case studies from North America and Europe
* Comprehensive explorations of how peoples' perceptions of hazards impact workplace operations and the daily lives of employees
* Fulsome discussions of the effect of societal attitudes on workplace health and safety
