Hi Safety FM
listeners, this is Brent Sutton
, one of the co-hosts of the new podcast series The Practice of Learning Teams
, with my fellow co-hosts Glynis McCarthy
and Brent Robinson
Our goal is to support you on your journey and build a better community of practice for Learning Teams
On today's show, Brent Sutton
and Brent Robinson
spend time with safety mythologist and historian Carsten Busch
Carsten is the Indiana Jones of Safety and the author of the books:
1) Preventing Industrial Accidents: Reappraising H. W. Heinrich – More than Triangles and Dominoes
2) Safety Myth 101: Musings on Myths, Misunderstandings and More
3) If You Can’t Measure It… Maybe You Shouldn’t: Reflections on Measuring Safety, Indicators, and Goals
Last week Carsten published his new book The First Rule of Safety Culture: A Counter-C-Word Manifesto
Does the World really need another book about the C-word in Safety, being culture?
Carsten would say NO, and his new book is about thinking critically about Safety Culture.
Structured into six parts, the book covers Safety Culture discourse, approaches, and applications critically. For example, whether we should see culture as a tool to fix something or rather as a lens to study and understand.
The book also tries to offer some useful and practical suggestions for different approaches, or at least different ways to think about these subjects.
WARNING! If you ever wanted to become a culture architect, hopefully, you will think twice after reading this.
Please sit back and enjoy the conclusion of this two-part series as we discuss the C-word in Safety with Carsten.
