Safety Manager Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Safety Manager in Paris:
"Details."
It's all in the details, and treat others the way you would want to be treated. No better, no worse.

Safety Manager in Houston:
"The amount of babysitting you have to put up with from adult."
I am disappointed that today we baby sit more than we should. We should be leading and managing projects and manufacturing more than just safety. Safety was seen as a cost historically, but of late with the major incidents in the Gulf of Mexico, along the Gulf States and elsewhere, we should begin to be seen as an asset and needed.

Safety Manager in Fredericktown:
"Know The Value Of Your Job."
Know the value of your position and look for resources daily. Train your people and request outside audits.

Safety Manager in Montgomery:
Always put the safety of the people first above everything else. Always tell employees the truth. They must have confidence in you as a safety professional.
