New blog post: ‘Workplace fatality: No going back’
This week, in honor of Workers’ Memorial Day, Dave Trumble, National Safety Council Labor Division member and past Distinguished Service to Safety Award winner, shares a story on the NSC “Safety First” blog about how at-work fatalities can permanently impact workplace culture, and the role training and labor advocates play in keeping workers safe on the job.
In the post, Trumble writes: “After driving past a car crash, we all slow down for the next little while. This is similar to how we respond in the aftermath of a workplace fatality. We often slow down for a bit before the behaviors and habits of the years creep back in. Some organizations refuse to let complacency return and make foundational changes that alter the workplace culture forever.”
