    Best Practices That May Just Save Someone’s Life

    Best Practices That May Just Save Someone’s Life

    Best practices get a bad rap.
    It seems like a lot of the conversations today are centered around “why you should move beyond best practices,” or “why best practices aren’t enough.” And there is for sure some truth to those statements. But best practices are there for a reason, and a lot of times companies either brush them aside, or are so determined to move beyond best practices that they end up getting themselves in trouble.
    On this episode of The Safety Management Show, James Desmond, the Safety Director at Blu Site Solutions, talks all about:

    Why a college degree isn’t always necessary for a career in safety
    Why you should treat your safety department as an essential part of your organization.
    How safety departments can go from being reactive to proactive
    Why adherence to best practices may just save someone’s life
