Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who leads safety or people in general. This is a step by step road map to develop and continuously improve your existing culture to excellence. I found myself reading the STEPS over and over again. This book is rich in information that is results-oriented and extremely practical to start in your organization today. I find myself referring back to this book on a regular basis. Terry and Shawn are truly leading the safety industry to excellence and consistently challenge the status quo of traditional thinking.
As a ProAct Safety follower I was really looking forward to a book that could put all of what our Plant has learned in to a step-by-step guide to keep our journey towards safety culture excellence moving forward. This book is all of that, and more. Shawn and Terry's knowledge, shared experiences and passion for safety makes this book a must read for any organization. Each milestone (STEP) in the book does just what I want a book to achieve, attain more knowledge, further my passion for safety, but more important, being able to apply the learnings in to your organization. Our Plant is implementing and adjusting some of our STEPS.
Thank You, Safety done right!
