ProAct Safety, an international safety excellence consulting firm, announced its president, chief operating officer and partner, Shawn Galloway, has been named a monthly safety columnist for Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) magazine, one of the safety industry’s most-followed publications. The column is titled “Practical Excellence.”

After more than 10 years of experience in the safety industry, and due to his reputation as a thought leader in the area of safety strategies, Galloway was asked by OH&S publisher Jerry Laws to use the column to share his ideas for getting down to the real and practical work of building an excellent safety culture.

“Shawn is eager to explode questionable conventional wisdom and some long-accepted empty safety slogans in his new column,” said Laws. “I believe our readers will benefit from his insight and will be very appreciative of his knowledge about strategies for motivating behavioral change—strategies that have been honed through his consulting work with hundreds of international organizations.”

Galloway has personally worked with The United States Capital, The United States Armed Forces, National Institutes of Health, Merck, Wrigley, Pepsi, Baker Hughes, Eastman Chemical, Georgia-Pacific, Honda, Ingersoll-Rand, Rockwell Automation, Timken, Starbucks and over a hundred similar organizations. He has been recognized by the National Safety Council as a “safety guru”, and was named in the “ISHN Power 101” leaders of the environmental health and safety world.

Galloway had written several guest columns for OH&S before being offered the opportunity to write a monthly column. “The guest writing experience demonstrated to me what a great publication OH&S is, as well as how dedicated the people at the magazine are to safety. It takes a special kind of person to make reporting on safety your life’s work,” Galloway said. “I was honored to be asked to become a regular writer.”
