This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies.
This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds his/her own impartial comments and places the articles in context.
Learning to work safely in a dangerous workplace requires explicit knowledge, such as identifying safety symbols and following correct procedures. However, it also involves personal ideologies and instincts. Risky situations require collective working, and so individuals must share knowledge and responsibility and converge their subjectivities. A social-cultural workplace requires good communication and space to allow for interaction and knowledge transfer and for a common frame of reference to develop. Good leadership and guidance support a safety culture within the workplace.
The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
