Skipper Kendrick, CSP, FASSP, President, Kendrick Global Enterprises, LLC, joins us for part 2 of a 3 part series about “When Are We Going to Learn.” In this second part, Skipper expands into “safety first”, challenging the idea that it really is; rather, it needs to be equal. Skipper explores what organizations need to be productive, effective, and continue in operation. Skipper also talks about designing “stick shakers” in place to keep the organization within safe risks that allow the organization to move forward.
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.
