A Leadership Worldview for Psychosocial Safety
SafetyRisk.net
by Dr Rob Long
20h ago
I’ve noticed recently a few books released on ‘head and heart leadership’ and similar titles. Using metaphor to privilege one part of the body over another is nonsense.

When one reads ISO 45003 or any other Codes of Practice regarding Psychosocial Health it is clear that the engineers are in town. It is as if a ‘cut and paste’ has been done associating Psychosocial health as if it is just another hazard. It is NOT! Of course, the history of the safety industry ..read more

by Matt Thorne

Most people would agree that wanting a Psycho-Socially safe workplace is a desirable thing. The Federal Government of Australia definitely thought so when they introduced Psycho-Social Hazards into managing Health and Safety see SafeWork Australia .

Continuing with our series on Psychosocial Safety Dos and Don’ts Don’t ever associate Psychosocial and Mental Health with hazards.

When it comes to a discussion on culture, the risk and safety industry leaves out any discussion of the lost critical elements of culture. These are the safety silences on culture (https://safetyrisk.net/category/safety-culture-silences/ ). In SPoR, we propose a completely different understanding of culture as a ‘wicked problem’ best tackled through Semiotics and Poetics. To entertain ..read more

The KISS of Death in Safety
SafetyRisk.net
by Dr Rob Long
6d ago
I came across this Safety ‘goop’ a few weeks ago that serves as a good example of the nature of indoctrination in this industry (https://www.qmihsconference.org.au/wp-content/uploads/qmihsc-2008-writtenpaper-reynoldson.pdf).

This is the safety code (https://safetyrisk.net/deciphering-safety-code ..read more
