Organizational SafetyHis first book,"Organizational Safety" is now available for download through Amazon's Kindle Store.

The book is an account of safety program management successes, shortfalls and the Organization, Authority, Empowerment and Delegation Model that Worden developed which allows for a comprehensive safety program in spite of organizational obstacles.

"I’m happy with the book because it’s an accumulation of best practices and program management benchmarks that I’ve noted over the years through experience in military, private industry and municipal safety," Worden said. He is currently working on his second book.
