Fixing A Broken Safety Culture


8/31/23 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm CDT

Event Description

“Safety culture” has become a buzz phrase in recent years. At its core, though, it means that a high-performing safety program has buy-in and engagement from the front lines to the C-suite. If achieved, a strong safety culture can lead to full participation in safety across the entire organization, better training, improved data capture, corrective and preventative actions before incidents happen, and, ultimately, lower injury rates – creating both a positive impact on employees’ lives and the organization’s bottom line.

Join NSC 40 Under 40 Award Winner, Zach Pucillo, as he reflects on his 17 years of experience in working with organizations to modify their safety cultures. Zach will cover:

  • How to engage executives and supervisors to continually reinforce the importance of safety to all frontline workers
  • Top tactics for engaging employees – how to make participation easy and fun
  • Spotting internal “coyotes” and how they can interrupt your objectives
  • Stripping safety down to the studs and rebuilding it with today’s technology and resources so that safety can become a part of your workplace culture
