STEPS to Safety Culture Excellence

ProAct Safety, provider of safety excellence strategies for organizations across the globe, announced has named its book, STEPS to Safety Culture Excellence, as a best seller in its Occupational & Industrial Medicine category. The book outlines how to build capabilities into an organization’s culture that allow for continuous incremental and transformational safety improvement.

The book was co-written by ProAct Safety’s CEO, Terry Mathis, and its president, Shawn Galloway. ProAct’s philosophy on Safety Culture Excellence℠ emphasizes creating conditions within a company to improve the success of safety initiatives. According to Mathis, the book lays out a formula for excellence that is focused on strengthening safety capabilities as a part of controlling an organization’s chemistry and climate on the way to maximum growth.

Galloway explains the book’s methodology involves teaching a company how to identify, prioritize and solve safety problems using a proactive approach, rather than reacting to impending safety issues. “Readers quickly realize the STEPS methodology challenges the way we’ve always approached safety improvement. Safety initiatives work best—and benefit an entire organization—when they are naturally integrated into overall corporate goals.”

The book’s listing on Amazon has gathered a large number of positive testimonials indicating its usefulness for safety leaders within a wide variety of organizations, as well as the positive impact of any involvement with ProAct Safety advisors.

"STEPS is an excellent roadmap for building upon the culture already present in our workplace. I'll be using it to improve where we are going with our business' safety program. This roadmap -- from developing a strategy (most of us don't have one) to selling the strategy, to how we do or don't utilize discipline, is presented in an easy-to-follow format. Love the lists of questions to be
answered at the end of each STEP. We'll be getting started on our first STEP in the next few weeks."

“As a senior safety professional in a senior role in my company I recommend ALL of you look at having everyone who are leading others in your pursuits to safety excellence read this book and participate in the questions and exercises. To me, those make the whole book - it is tangible and reflective of how well the message has been previously communicated and how to move forward with the message and the strategy decided upon. As always, Shawn and Terry, you continue to make me stronger and more educated every time we have some form of contact or communication. Thank you for saying what it is so clearly that even I can comprehend it!"
