Publication- Be the best with our latest book

Be the best: how to become a world-class health and safety professional isn’t a typical health and safety book. It doesn’t tell you why you should manage health and safety, or even what you should be managing. There are plenty of other books that do that.

Instead, it recognises that getting a qualification is only the start of the journey towards being an effective champion of health and safety. From overcoming the traditional ‘clipboard and cagoule’ image of our profession to convince people that good health and safety means good business, this practical, no-nonsense guide will help you get the best out of your knowledge and experience and the people you work with.

In Be the best you’ll learn how to get board-level support for your ideas, stress the ‘valueadded’ benefits of good health and safety clearly and simply, and develop inspiring ways of overcoming inaction and lack of interest among managers and staff.

The author, Richard Byrne CMIOSH, is the group health, safety and environment manager for ATS Euromaster. One of his current projects is to help the organisation achieve competitive advantage through one of its unique selling points: the way it manages safety.
