The Safety Dude

A good podcast focusing on Safety, I really think you will like it. It focuses as much on the behavior and culture of safety as it does the day to day experiences of a safety professional, Mark is a great teacher and has dedicated his career to improving the safety culture everywhere he has been. That probably why he's called "The Safety Dude".
