Safety Sucks! The Manifesto
Pale Horse Media Co
May 15, 2021
The professional practice of occupational safety and health has within it the ability to help and the capacity to harm. The safety practitioner, the one that wields this doubled-edged sword, holds within their hands a disease and a cure. Unfortunately, the disease seems systemic and the cure far, far away. Our dated and flawed approaches to worker safety have left much to be desired, both within our own ranks and the companies that we serve. In this second book of the Safety Sucks! series, we will discuss where the “sucks” of the safety profession stem from and will offer some ideas on how we can make them, at the very least, suck less. We will explore the underlying beliefs that organizations, industries, and safety professionals hold about safety, and how these beliefs impact the role of the practitioner. We will discuss how we can create a more impactful role for the safety practitioner, how the practitioner can be more effective in their day-to-day job, and the things that we as safety practitioners should be focusing on.

Safety Sucks!: The Bull $H!# in the Safety Profession They Don’t Tell You About
Pale Horse Media Co
May 05, 2020
"A thorough and needed rebuke of the modern safety profession." - Anonymous
"This should be a required read for anyone looking to start in the safety field! Just read it damnit!" Matt D
"If you’re in a leadership role of any capacity, read this!" - Dan R

Change is hard, I get it. But we move beyond bad ideas by introducing better ideas. I truly believe that by continuing to have these “hard” conversations in an upfront, honest and fun way, we cultivate betterment. The safety profession has been stagnant for far too long. Safety folks are abused and misused, they’re often underpaid and overworked, they are undervalued and not appreciated, they find themselves being blamed and shamed when accidents occur, they are torn between the frontline and management, they have been forced to knowingly promote flawed, ineffective and disproven safety management systems – to preach from a bible in which they do not believe, and it's time for all of that to change.
