10 New Year’s Resolutions for Safety Professionals

10 New Year’s Resolutions for Safety Professionals – What are Yours?

Happy New Year.By Phil LaDuke – republished by request

Phil says: I received so many requests to repost last year’s article on New Year’s Resolutions for Safety Professionals that I finally acquiesced. What do you think? Do these still make sense? How well have you (or the safety function in general) done in keeping these resolutions?  Safety professionals have been on the sidelines for too long. Too few safety professionals see themselves as being essential contributors to the company’s bottom line.
