Rafael Redmond, Safety Manager for AstraZeneca, is today’s guest on #ClientSideChats! AstraZeneca is a global bio-pharmaceutical company that researches and produces cutting-edge medicines, so extra proactive measures, as well as small efforts, were taken to make a big difference in sanitation. Rafael’s team has made the switch to virtual meetings, as well as adopting a facility hoteling system based on a first-come, first-serve basis to keep up with sanitizing frequently touched surfaces. Rafael also discusses how AstraZeneca completes temperature screenings with their newly installed thermal imaging cameras spread throughout several of their buildings We hope you join us on today’s chat!
In our 3rd and last Client Side Chat series, James chats with Sondra Lavoie, CSP, ASP, CHST, on Women in Safety: the barriers and how to overcome them. In this episode, Sondra discusses some of the biases uniquely faced by women in safety, setting up boundaries, and saying “yes and” as a way of saying no. Sondra discusses her success such as getting out into the field to overcome perceptions and being viewed as a safety professional: fair and as an equal. Sondra also discusses the workforce and organizational cultures and how they need to change. Check out this episode to learn about the challenges women in safety face and how everyone can help make the workplace fair.
