Safety Management Consultant, CECD
"Every day I work with employers to show that safety and productivity are not opposing forces. In the end it takes much less time to do things right than it takes to explain why things went wrong. If you just depend on ‘common sense’ for a safe workplace, you will soon find that common sense is always trumped by common practices."
