ANTZI ... what a great concept, well thought out and significant in choice. I was happy to read and review this book as I wanted to see how the subject would be presented. Each page has something of value. This is probably the most "fun" book in health and safety that I have read. It proves that health and safety can be fun. It also allows you to reflect on your own, everyday experiences. It makes you realise your responsibility for others and not just yourself ... that is ANTZI. What keeps one glued to the pages is the passion of the two writers, Jürgen and Natalie, as they weave a story of what I consider to be one of the most important components of occupational health and safety - "structure". I look forward to a transformed industry, as Jürgen and Natalie bless us with more of their wisdom in future.

This guide is one of its kind. It is a good mix of both theoretical knowledge and practical application. Easy to understand and written in a way that reader engagement is top priority ... one interesting page after the other ... Health & Safety Reps will be more self-reliant after working through this empowering D-I-Y guide. They should be able to have the necessary skills for dealing with problem-solving and challenging situations in the workplace, as well as reflecting on their involvement in health and safety in general, and also in their contribution towards making workplaces safer. The Greek philosopher, Aristotle, wrote "The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet." It is a truism that is never more profound than in this thought-provoking and exhaustive guide.

I think this is a wonderful tool that we will be able to utilise. ... There is a need for SHE rep training and understanding of their roles and I find the material to be very informative and to the point.

What a novel and refreshing approach to behavioural safety for H&S Reps. I would recommend this book / course to any firstline manager who wants to care for and grow their subordinates into independent, observant and action-oriented individuals. The ANTZI motto of "the more you put in the more you get out" resounds throughout the book.

I have been going through the survival guide – slowly – to digest the contents and appreciate the huge effort that you have put into this work from your hearts. I share a similar passion for getting into people’s heads what SHEQ is really about, not just bland perceptions. I will be punting this guide all through the clients that I service and through my business networks.

The use of the ANTZI examples makes the understanding of the topics easy to follow and identify with. It is easy to read and I can take to the lowest-paid employee in the organisation and they can understand it. For a change, the H&S Rep can be the teacher, teaching other people. It's easy. They can talk about it anywhere. It is my firm belief that this book will go a long way in enabling the H&S Reps to do their jobs well.

Llewellyn Walljee - Independent Health & Safety Advisor
Although it says Health & Safety Reps, the book is applicable to supervisors as well as general workers, as it addresses areas where health and safety is applicable to all levels. I like the colour-coded index. I can easily browse for a topic. I also like the variety of the topics, the tips and the FAQ's and self-test questions. The visuals mean that you can't get bored with the book.
