Don Wilson, Vice President – SafeStart

Don Wilson Social

Since the vast majority of injuries and accidental deaths occur outside the workplace, many organizations are trying to determine how their current safety management system will protect their employees 24/7. For most companies, the cost of off-the-job injuries is higher than on the job, and command and control strategies have had little positive effect.
Employees need to be introduced to practical tools that can be used every day to reduce injuries both on and off the job.
This session explored how you can recognize the repeated critical errors that are made in virtually all injuries and drastically reduce injuries 24/7.
