MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast
Episode #40 | Published March 1, 2021
When something goes wrong in the workplace, who is responsible for the safety of the worker? Safety should be the priority, right? Who’s priority? What level of priority? Should it be a higher priority for the manager or supervisor than the employee? Some have the opinion, that safety should not a priority at all, profit is what should drive a business. Many say, safety should be first, it should be the responsibility of the teacher, the manager, or the worker, or somewhere in between. Still others, find that safety is important but would argue who is responsible for it. And that brings us to Mike Rowe and Safety 3rd.
On this episode of the MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast, I speak with Greg Larochelle, Safety Management Consultant and Randy Klatt, Director of Region 2 Loss Control at MEMIC about the priority of safety, and where it lands in the hierarchy. Is safety really 3rd or is it first?
