The relationship between the C-Suite and safety professionals is changing… and hopefully for the better.

Because of quick turnarounds in such a harsh environment, executives truly began to understand the value of the safety professional and not only that - they began to value the importance of safety and health programs at their facilities. Even before the pandemic, however, relations between the C-Suite and safety professionals were on the up and up. Why? Because its good for business.
