Safety Manager in Redwood Falls:

It's all in the details, and treat others the way you would want to be treated. No better, no worse.

Training training training.. People assume you know the osha books by memory, you don't it's more than the bible. Study, don't ever stop.

Safety Manager in Myrtle Beach:
"Take knowledge and apply it to your everyday."
Training is key. Educate them and give them the tools necessary to achieve success while keeping themselves and everyone around them SAFE!! All accidents are preventable and it is better to train everyone even knowing there is a possibility of turnover rather than no training and they end up staying. It's worth every minute.

"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 Austin:
"Find a good Mentor."
Get all the training you can and listen to a good mentor.
