Cooking to Commemorate, Lest We Forget By Jose D. Perezgonzalez
eBook (PDF): $0.00
This cookbook commemorates April 25th, allowing for a remembrance of such important date for Australians and New Zealanders at the table. Therefore, the foods for the day use ingredients similar to... More > those that conformed the war rations back in 1915. However, as much as our forefathers brought freedom and abundance with their sacrifice, modern New Zealanders and Australians have their own battles to fight, chief among them unbalanced diets and the diseases of abundance linked to them. Thus, this book also brings a bit of sacrifice, providing meals which are nutritionally balanced so as to encourage healthy eating on the day. Ultimately, this is a book that Australians and New Zealanders would like to possess in their libraries so that they can come back to it on April 25th in years to come.< Less

More > forward from previous theoretical and empirical work (e.g. Pérezgonzález, 2005a, b), and has the following main features: it proposes a theoretical formulation of a generic Health and Safety Management System for most industrial and service sectors, it offers clear graphic lines of influence of the different components in the Health and Safety Management System on organisational health and safety, it reviews and updates Pérezgonzález’s theoretical and graphical model, and, finally, it reviews and edits the text layout so that it now describes an integrated Health and Safety Management System instead of a research objective.< Less

Book Review: The Southwest Airlines Way By Jose D. Pérezgonzález
eBook (PDF): $1.00
[This paper can also be found as part of the Journal of Knowledge Advancement & Integration at www.lulu.com/Journal-KAI]. Gittell's book synthesises an eight-year research work done by the author... More > on four American airlines, although the focus is on Southwest Airlines as it showed distinctive practices which form the antecedent variables of a model of relational coordination. “The Southwest Airlines Way” is more than a case study on Southwest Airlines. It is also an important reference for future research on the topic of relational coordination beyond the airline’s sector, as the book already provides the tools for such future research (i.e. model, methodology and results). This future research, if respecting the methodology and procedures followed by Gittell, will inform further about the validity of the model and its importance for a wider range of organisations.< Less

Construction Safety Management, A Systems Approach By Jose D. Pérezgonzález
eBook (PDF): $29.39
The few models on safety management that are available tend to explain a procedure to manage safety rather than a safety management system. The research carried out here, however, models safety... More > management by transforming a common procedural model (i.e. the HSE’s model, 1997) into a functional systems representation. The overall goal of the model is to offer clear graphic lines of influence of its different components on organisational safety. The model is innovative not in the components that it considers but in the representation of those components, which details relative distances between elements and, therefore, opens doors to model-driven hypotheses which account for those distances. Therefore, hypotheses are more accurate in their predictions. This model is firstly explored in the construction sector. Results from this exploratory research support the adequacy of the model to understanding safety management and encourage future research of a more confirmatory nature.< Less
