Maximizing student insights into a new movement toward leadership approaches that are collaborated and shared; and which views Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) and performance excellence within the wider examination of leadership relationships and practices; this ebook; Integrated Occupational Safety and Health Management: Solutions and Industrial Cases (PDF) argues that these relationships and processes are so central to the establishment of OSH functioning that studying them warrants a broad; cross-disciplinary; multiple method analysis.
Exploring the complexity of leadership by the impact that contexts (e.g.; national and organizational culture) may have on leaders; this ebook discusses the related literature; then moves forward to show how a more comprehensive practical approach to Occupational Safety and Health and performance excellence can function on levels pertaining to individuals; events; groups; and organizations. This ebook; Integrated Occupational Safety and Health Management; proposes that greater clarity in understanding leadership in Occupational Safety and Health and performance excellence can be developed from addressing two fundamental issues. Firstly; how do subunit inputs and processes combine to produce unit-level outcomes; and how does leadership affect this process? Secondly; how do the leaders influence the way that individual-level inputs are combined to produce organizational outputs? In these issues; the alternative methodologies that allow precise measurement of organizational outputs in OSH and performance excellence are reviewed.
To help students navigate through the best practices; every chapter contains Exercises; Question Guidelines; and Case studies which illustrate the concepts discussed and which serves to highlight the key evidence demonstrating that collaborative leadership can positively affect individual; group; and organizational level outcomes; including organizational OSH and performance excellence.
