Reaching Top Leadership through EHS Data

24 May 2017

Safety professionals already understand the importance of developing a strong safety culture in the workplace. It helps reduce accidents, incidents, and near misses, improves productivity and morale, and reduces costs. At the same time, successfully maintaining an effective safety culture needs buy-in from top leadership. This can be a tougher sell to executives who are under pressure to increase productivity and grow the bottom line and don’t necessarily see the connection with safety. How can you reach out to these top leaders? How do you get their attention?
