A New Way to Think and Talk Safety
Relentless Safety is a passion project that came about from frustration with the same old same old. Over the years the Safety Profession has done some great things. In other ways, it’s stagnant and needs some hard self-reflection. I started this site as an outlet for those like me who are looking to make a real difference, not just tout tired safety slogans. My goal with this site is to talk about the uncomfortable and challenge the status quo. We may not agree on everything, but we can all get relentless.
A Little About Me
My name is Jason Maldonado. I have spent the past 15 years working in Safety and Health roles throughout a variety of industries. Beginning as an explosive safety technician while serving in the United States Air Force, I developed a passion for teaching the importance of working safely and helping others figure out how to accomplish that mission. After transitioning from the military, I spent time in heavy civil construction, chemical weapon demilitarization, electrical transmission and distribution, and food manufacturing. All of these experiences have helped shape my unique perspective of the state of the modern Safety Professional and ignited a passion to help peers truly make the workplace safer. I hold the credentials of Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Safety Management Specialist (SMS), Certified Occupational Hearing Conservationist (COHC), and Certified Reliability Leader (CRL).
