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.

In this episode, we discuss risk perception and any difference between foreign-born and domestic construction workers. How safety professionals should address risk perceptions is also discussed. Matt is the Director of Customer Safety Strategy at Grainger.

The study yielded some interesting perceptions and conclusions regarding risk. The idea was to see if risk perceptions link to injury results: listen to hear the results.
