The Post-Pandemic Reframing of Workplace Safety

Looking into the future, employers must reframe how they think about workplace safety, health and wellness. In this episode, editor Sydny Shepard and Blackline Safety Chief Revenue Officer Sean Stinson discuss the issues on the forefront and how companies can mitigate them.

The pandemic has changed much about the way that we conduct business as well as how we communicate with co-workers, clients and managers. It has introduced new technology to workplaces, more efficient processes to organizations and shown managers that employees are productive even when not in the office.

While businesses have changed or evolved operations to succeed in a coronavirus-filled world, it is important to begin to make plans for the future in a post-pandemic world. Today, I’ve got Sean Stinson on the podcast to discuss just that. We have an excellent conversation on how to reframe workplace safety as we ease into a time that reminds us of what our lives used to look like pre-covid-19.

Before we get to that, however, I do want to introduce our guest a little better. You might recognize him from an episode earlier this year on the key indicators of a strong safety culture, but Sean Stinson also serves as Chief Revenue Officer of Blackline Safety, where he oversees teams including data science, product management, user experience design, sales, client success and customer care. He earned a BS in electrical engineering from the University of Calgary in 2002 and has spent nearly 20 years in the safety industry.

So, how do you begin to reframe the way you think about workplace safety, health and wellbeing following the Coronavirus pandemic? Listen to this episode to find out! Download, stream and listen to OH&S SafetyPod on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify and more.
