Safety4Good’s Trustee Dr Andrew Sharman has released his newest book ‘One Percent Safer’.

What is the purpose of the book, what is its aim? 

If we all do just one thing, just improve workplace safety by one percent, then that’s 28,000 people that get to go home without harm, instead of ending up dead – each year.  28,000 husbands, wives, partners, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, friends, and co-workers. 28,000 humans.

The Japanese concept of Kaizen, the idea of incremental change – one small thi ng at a time – is what we’re talking about here.  The compounding effect of trying to get 1% better each day is huge – it’s a 3,800% improvement in just one year.  In simple terms, that’s a 40 times improvement on whe re you are right now.

This book is your toolkit: 142 of the world’s most thoughtful leaders, right here just for you. Read them all, read just one, skip some, read what you prefer. Just do something. One t hing. One idea. One percent safer. Let’s make the world a safer place, one percent at a time.

Who is this book meant for?

This is the book for anyone that’s been told to follow the rules… and then wondered if there’s something else they could do. 

It’s for business leaders, managers, supervisors, safety & health professionals that don’t want people to get hurt in their organizations and workplaces.
