“Measuring Performance”: is a captivating book about his various experiences as a safety professional who has improved the lives of various with thousands of migrant workers. “Measuring Performance” is the creation of published author, Dr. Bill Pomfret, a best-selling writer, speaker, and dynamic presenter who has traveled the world to educate and motivate managers and employees to adopt effective health, safety, and risk-control policies, practices, and procedures.
Dr. Pomfret shares, “One of the trends I see is that industrialized countries are exporting their hazards to developing countries. Seldom do you see a local performing the dirty and difficult jobs in construction and or mining. Many of the ergonomic problems of the west have been moved to the Middle East, where labor is not only cheaper but much less protected. The rate of fatal accidents in the developing gulf region is four times higher than that of industrialized countries. And while workers in western countries enjoy universal health coverage and compensation, less than 10 percent of the workforce in developing countries has such social protection. For those that do have protection, there are very limited provisions if any, for compensation in case of occupational diseases or accidents. Clearly, there is a link to poverty, just as there is a link between child labor and poverty. The reasoning is simple: if the breadwinner dies or is disabled for a short or long period, the whole family, and extended family will suffer. And there are 2.2 million such cases annually. The poorer the country, the easier it is to fall into the trap. But there is a point below which you can no longer blame poverty alone.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Dr. Bill Pomfret’s new book is an extraordinary, detailed work that presents what it means and what it takes to be a health and safety professional as well as the challenges that he has faced and the trends that he has seen in industrialized and developing countries while serving many people with a sincere commitment.
