Topic Why We Measure Safety Performance to Demonstrate Safety Program Value
Guest Speaker James D. Smith, M.S., CSP
The presentation will engage the audience to examine how they are measuring their safety program to demonstrate organizational value. James D. Smith, M.S., CSP, will share his experience on why we measure safety performance and provide different examples of how to measure your safety program.
