Safety Management Consultant, RN, COHN, OHST, WCP®
“We need to change the way we do work. All workplace hazards can be effectively controlled, if not completely eliminated. Occupational injuries and illnesses do not need to be the inevitable consequence of doing work. With the right kind of leadership and direction, even what seems to be an impossible task can be achieved—an injury-free work environment.”
