"Ron McKinnon informs the reader of how management's role really sets what safety culture is all about. He guides the reader through a detailed discussion of why safety culture isn't just limited to a collection of random worker behaviors but is much more of a purposeful outcome of the active policies that management embraces, demonstrates, and leads with by example."
-Jonathan Klane M.S.ed., CIH, CHMM, CET, 2012, Klane's Education Information Training Hub
