Dr. Geller's latest book is based on the belief that too many safety articles and books take a "common sense" approach, which in fact often runs counter to research. In The Participation Factor Dr. Geller provides answers to commonly asked occupational safety questions, such as, "What safety slogans are more appropriate? What kinds of incentive/reward programs increase participation? What safety performance metrics increase positive stress rather than negative stressors, thereby encouraging empowerment and involvement?

Also included is a new Social Influence Survey (SIS) designed to teach the social dynamics of safety.

Chapter titles include: The Psychology of Non-Participation; The Benefits of Self-Persuasion; The Need for Competence; The Support of Social Dynamics; and Essentials of Effective Leadership
