The only thing I would add to this, is that the Safety person “MUST” be a hands on, on the floor type of person who is willing work with, and get to know his employees as well as earn their trust. They also need to know that you are approachable so that they don’t look at us as “the enemy, or cop on the beat.” When you include employees “as a part” of your safety program, and have them give safety talks, be a part of safety committees, etc.., you will indeed get excellent results. Once they begin to take ownership of their own safety, results will occur! I’ve done it this way, and it works! ~ Jack Benton
