What Utility Safety Leaders Do:

Tips, Tactics, Strategies and Insights for Leaders

What Utility Safety Leaders Do — — Tips, Tactics, Strategies and Insights for Leaders… Because of the hazards and risks in the utility industry, and the life changing nature of utility incidents, the industry needs leadership like never before. Utilities are good at rules. We have rules for chocking truck tires, PPE, confined space entry, trenching and shoring and the list goes on and on.  But, since no two jobs are exactly the same, rules must always be interpreted, applied only to have conditions change and rules must be re-applied. To that end, safety leadership is the key to long term success…and safety leadership is NOT outlined in our safety manuals. This book provides innovative and tested leadership tips, tactics, strategies and ideas specifically for utilities. We need leaders, because “Nobody gets hurt today.”

Gutsy – Go Until Time Stops You!

Book-Cover-GutsyLife is difficult,” is how renowned therapist and best selling author M. Scott Peck opened his popular series, The Road Less Traveled. No disrespect to Dr. Peck, but one doesn’t have to be a best selling author to understand that life is tough. In truth, we are all looking for the same thing–to be GUTSY. Don’t believe me, let’s define it, “gut, adj, gutsy, -ier, -est: arising from within, from the innermost parts of the soul. Immediate and powerful impact, relevance, courage, brilliance, passion, fighter, significance.” The problem is that in this ‘life is difficult’ world, it is easy to get derailed, pulled off the GUTSY track and into the daily grind of life. GUTSY will not only keep you focused and on track, it will remind you of just how special you are. Oregon State Director of Basketball operations, Coach John Saintignon said, “GUTSY is great, and I will use it over and over!”

Book-Cover-what-safety-leadersToday there is a procedure for everything that is important. Yet, more than 99% of groups fail to have a road map for safety leadership.

To be successful, each organization must customize their program to fit their unique organization. To effectively ‘customize’ your company’s safety leadership program, you first need access to all of the cutting edge leadership tactics, tips and secrets – – which is exactly what this book provides!
