What do you think is effective to be in your role? 

Establishing trust and credibility with our clients and colleagues. Once trust and credibility have been established, the ability to influence is absolutely imperative to be able to sell safety and loss prevention efforts.

How do you see safety changing in the future?  

Technology will allow everyone to be more efficient while at the same time continue to lower risk.

What do you wish others knew about safety? 

Knowing the difference between loss prevention (being proactive) and loss control (being reactive). Company leaders should not wait till a bad incident occurs to take action with safety.  Loss prevention is the key to a successful safety culture.

What is your superpower?
