Event Information:
Safe 4 the Right Reasons Presented by Wylie Davidson with Dival Safety Creating a positive safety culture is both an Art and a Science! The Science addresses all of the regulations, compliance and engineering, and most companies have this covered. The Art side, or what we refer to as "the thin air" or human side of the equation, can be the greatest challenge for companies conquer. Safe 4 the Right Reasons breaks down our basic human nature and delivers a personal motivation to each employee to value their safety. This message also addresses how we must watch out for each other and be our brother's keeper. The best part of this message is that it is personal for every employee, and can be incorporated into all of your safety messages and trainings. It serves as the foundation of your safety culture for years to come. This meeting will count towards safety council attendance. Contact Deb Katzenmeyer at dkatz@limachamber.com,
