Tell me if you’ve heard this one: “At our company, safety is everyone’s job.”
When that statement is true, it’s a great thing.
But, even when safety is everyone’s job, there’s only one name under safety on the org chart — and if you’re reading this, chances are it’s yours.
Often, safety leaders head up a department of one.
And that can make you lonelier than the Maytag repair man.
