What’s your safety vibe? Alex Julius
Wednesday May 4th, 8:15am, Commercial Arborist Breakout (Adventureland)
This presentation will explore the factors that contribute to the safety climate and culture in your own company. Looking beyond enforcement of rules and regulations, management can address safety within their own company by working to improve workers’ perspective on safety. By employers supporting safe behavior, workers receive positive reinforcement for their safe work practices. Once we appreciate the importance of safety perspectives, we can use the power of constructive communication to effect positive change.
