SIF Prevention in High-Risk Industries: Culture, Leadership, and…Now What?

Why is it so hard to protect people from injury or death on the job? Yes, the risks are inherently high in industries such as Utilities and others with dispersed workforces. But we know the risks exist, so what’s keeping us from better preventing SIFs?
This webinar panel discussion explores the two critical factors influencing SIF prevention—culture and leadership—and the ways each needs to evolve to achieve success. We’ll look at the symbiotic relationship between culture and safety, what leaders should focus on to positively impact safety, and how we can adjust our approach and tactics to enable safety to thrive.
