In 2021, long-time SHP contributor Tim Marsh began writing a monthly blog series. Here, we compile all of his short, thought-provoking pieces in one place. Plus, provide a link to all of Tim’s other historical content…
In his latest blog, Tim Marsh discusses our collective approach to risk…
Tim discusses the $2.5 billion dollar fine and the last word in safety culture case studies…
Tim discusses the nature of luck and why individuals and organisations need to pro-actively and systemically work to maximise the chances of enjoying a fair share regarding the human factor.
Tim attempts to simplify the ‘hidden’ physiological science behind the effectiveness of a walk and talk, as we know that everyone likes to understand why things work well even when they long ago accepted that, clearly, they do so.
Tim talks about what James Bond has in common with safety professionals and how safety leadership needs to have substance.
Tim describes a recent case study of his, that provided an outlook on how managers treat their staff.
Tim describes how the ‘coupling’ concept can help organisations minimise the amount of knee jerk blame that can impact on a company’s culture.
Tim describes a simple ‘Safety Differently’ case study…
Tim delves into the complexities of trust and toxic cultures.
Tim makes the case that humour really does have a place in the health (and safety) world.
This ‘let’s debate this’ blog makes the case that, actually, there are several very good reasons why safety practitioners should play an active role in a holistic and integrated approach to mental health. (I’ve given this piece a provocative title in a blatant attempt to generate interest and discussion).
Tim revisits an old article of his and asks, is it better to risk offending the few to get an important message over to the many? Or is there a bigger picture that renders such short-term concerns irrelevant?
