What is the “New View?”

IMG_20150901_093203

There has been one constant throughout my career as an environmental safety and health professional:  Learning.  Every project, every challenge, every day offers something new to learn.  That constant keeps me engaged.

Recently, I started exploring the concepts and ideas represented by the “New View,” sometimes referred to as “Safety II” or “Safety Differently.”  What a satisfying adventure it has been.  It ties together many beliefs and concepts I have employed and elevates safety philosophy to a whole new level.  My exploration continues, but I have written a short paper on how I define the “New View.”

It has been posted on our The Safely Working Project web site.  Please read the paper and let me know what you think.
