Journey to Safety Excellence

Tagline or Tangible Resource?

In 2014, the National Safety Council kicked off an initiative called “The Journey to Safety Excellence,” a result of the Council’s understanding that many small to medium sized companies do not have the same safety resources and networking capabilities as larger corporations.

To that end, the Council put together free assessment tools, resource information and a networking structure that smaller companies could utilize at no cost — so they could start down their own path of safety excellence. In this presentation, attendees will learn how businesses of many types can benefit in utilizing the free resources.

This webinar takes the audience through the steps of continuous safety process improvement, and talks through a real-life scenario of how a company could utilize each aspect of the Journey to Safety Excellence resources.
