Today on #ClientSideChats, we have Pam Walaski, CSP, Senior Program Director for Specialty Technical Consultants and ASSP Board Member of 3 years! Pam tells us her success story of how safety found her through unexpected opportunity. Through a “partnership in safety” type of approach, her goal is to provide worth and value into her trainings. Not to mention that Pam received the 2020 ASSP Article of the Year Award!
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.
