This book takes a systems-thinking approach to allow readers to understand how Workplace safety and health (WSH) is an integral part of any organisation. The different chapters are strung together by an overarching model of incident causation, and underpinning models are presented to allow a strong conceptual foundation. Practical WSH knowledge also discussed in relevant chapters to ensure that beginners have an introduction to the fundamentals of WSH hazards and controls.The second edition presents additional systems thinking concepts and archetypes not covered previously, the safe design process in Australia, thoughts on learning disabilities and safety culture, and additional case studies. Besides the strong emphasis on conceptual framework, readers will also be exposed to the details of a WSH management system and practical WSH processes, hazards and controls. A series of online quizzes are available to readers to help them to reinforce the concepts of each chapter.Undergraduates and post-graduates will benefit from the systematic introduction to the foundations of WSH management. Practitioners will strengthen their conceptual understanding and widen their perspective by re-visiting the foundations of WSH management through a systems-thinking lens.
