About Me


IMAG0048

Nearly 20 years ago I was almost killed instantly by 70 000 lbs of falling steel due to improper training.  I quickly became involved in health and safety management with a focus on “proper” training and hazard assessment/prevention with great success.  My most recent work and interests involve the psychosocial aspect of a good health and safety/ human resources program.  Simply put, happy workers give you more and work safer while a sense of teamwork resonates through the workplace.

From this blog, I hope to help managers realize that showing appreciation and giving something back to the front line workers gives your workforce a sense of ownership and creates loyalty which is priceless!

Thanks

  11. Hi John!

    Thank you for calling in today and Happy Birthday once again! When you mentioned you were involved in “employee wellness”, I was immediately drawn to you. Thank you for visiting my site and commenting so I could find your site.

    As a former manager myself, employee wellness (in all respects) is key to a successful, profitable, happy business. If your employees are being treated with respect, have fair salaries/wages, are involved in making the company the best it can be (safety included), and acknowledged and appreciated for their efforts and productivity, your business and your life can excel. And, so can theirs!

    I’ve replied to your comment on my site as well with some brainstorming ideas for you to ponder (if you haven’t already). Sounds like you found what you’re really good at – excellent turn-around for your company’s record!

    I had the opportunity to turn around a business myself years ago. We went from the store with the highest theft rate, (incl. employee theft) in the district with one of the lowest profits and the most disorganized and unwelcoming store in the district to one of the safest, cleanest, most welcoming and organized stores for our customers (had a complete employee turn-around w/proper training) which resulted in much better profits for the company, and a bonus for me. Being supported, acknowledge and appreciated by Headquarters was invaluable to me so I can relate when you say, it must start at the top. Absolutely!

    Well done. Keep up the good work. ~Lisa
