Rhona Flin avec Safety at the Sharp End: A Guide to Non-Technical Skills
Presents the theory and practice of non-technical skills for safety. This guide covers the identification, training and evaluation of non-technical skills. It is intended for those who are studying or training these skills on Crew Resource Management and other safety or human factors courses.
'The text is lively and well illustrated with relevant figures and tables. Very interesting, informative and exploratory, it manages to balance the strictly technical and the non-technical with a welcome sense of humour and a refreshing degree of caring sensitivity to human rights and behaviour. Another Ashgate book which opens doors for new solutions to old and new safety problems.' ----- The RoSPA Occupational Safety & Health Journal, May 2008
