Ashley Kunz, MS, MBA, CSP, the Director of Environmental Health & Safety for Micron Technology, shares with us both personal and traditional safety perspective success stories! As a result of Micron being ahead of the pandemic curve, Ashley’s team was able to donate thermal scanners to local police departments and hospitals and train them on how to use the new equipment. Ashley’s community began reaching out to her for help, and her team was happy to show their support! From the words of the Micron Executive Team, “Lead, Don’t Follow.”
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.
