The third edition of a bestseller, Human Safety and Risk Management: A Psychological Perspective incorporates a decade of new research and development to provide you with a comprehensive and contemporary guide to the psychology of risk and workplace safety. A major enhancement is reflected in the new subtitle for the book, A Psychological Perspective, which highlights both the expertise of the authors and also confirms the predominantly psychological orientation of the revised text.

New in the Third Edition:

  • State-of-the-art theory reviews, research findings, and practical applications
  • New chapter on impact that sensor technologies have on approaches to safety and risk in contemporary society
  • Enhanced chapters on key issues around sensing danger, risk perception, error detection, safety culture, risk management, leadership, teams, and stress management

This book discusses how people perceive and manage risks and how to make the workplace a safer place. It examines the influence of individual factors on safety, as well as team and organizational factors at work, from a psychological perspective. It also highlights changes in safety due to the changing workplace, globalization, and managing employees’ safety and health beyond the workplace — a challenge that many organizations have yet to address. Reflecting current scientific research across a range of disciplines as it applies to human safety and risk management, this book helps you meet the challenges posed by the rapidly evolving workplace.
