In this #ClientSideChats, we are following up with our first guest at the start of this series, EHS Manager for Betts Co., Mark Patton! Last month, Betts Co. was featured on Mike Brewer’s (host of Wheeler Dealers) World of Cars that first aired on August 5, 2020. Today, James speaks with Mark about what has happened since their last discussion; how business is picking up again, what new safety behaviors have stuck, how they are staying safe with the increasing number of returning employees, and how Mark is focusing on proactive planning.
Skipper Kendrick, CSP, FASSP, President, Kendrick Global Enterprises, LLC, joins us for part 1 of a 3-part series about “When Are We Going to Learn.” In this first part, Skipper discusses and challenges the idea that compliance is equal to safety. Skipper shares examples that question that notion and, while compliance is important and not going away, it is not the magic bullet that would put you into the top-tier safety performance. Skipper leaves us in this part with two things needed for safety training and about “safety first”: listen to hear what he really thinks.
