And now for something a little different…
I’ve spent a lot of time on this blog talking about the pitfalls and shortcomings of traditional safety. While that’s still a huge beast to tackle, this past week has given me pause to think about some of the good things we do.
In my last post, I made the point that we could make a whole lot more progress if we focused on the things we strive for rather than the things we don’t want. With that in mind, I’m going to take my own advice and use this series (The Good Stuffs) to highlight some people who are doing big things in the safety community.
Last week the ASSP announced their first Cohort of online community influencers. Jason Lucas, creator of the #SocialMediaSafetyMinute, was one of the 22 selected. When you have some spare time, take a look at Jason’s LinkedIn content. He’s done a great job of breaking down the basics that we all tend to overlook from time to time.
It’s time to get louder
This week in my subscriber email newsletter, I covered the idea that there are a lot of great voices out there in the safety community. While I believe that to be true, I also think the good voices get drowned out by the old guard.
If you or someone you know is making waves in the safety world email me and let me know. I’d love to give them any bandwidth I can.
Hi. I’m Jason. I’m the author of the book A Practical Guide to the Safety Profession: The Relentless Pursuit from CRC Press. I’m excited to get to share it with you all and hope it will be as valuable a tool to you as it has been to me. There is no other safety book out there like it. That’s not me being arrogant and assuming you’ll love it. You might not. But at least we’ll be able to have a needed conversation about the change needed in the safety profession. It is available now! Email me at Jason@relentlesssafey.com
