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.”
As we continue our conversation with Scott Shackelford, Product Compliance Engineer with Google, we turn our discussion to safety leadership and influencing, especially in the absence of regulation. Scott talks about his experience in his current role where compliance is a given and addressing safety to mitigate anticipated risk so it becomes the norm in the future. Looking at it from a strategic risk perspective, Scott includes prediction of risk and risk tolerance as part of the factors to use in addressing risk to get engagement of the stakeholders.
