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.
