In EHS Today Magazine’s list of safety trailblazers and safety professionals, ProAct Safety CEO and COO honored for landmark book about safety excellence.

We need more iconoclastic leaders in our industry, more people who will challenge the status quo and think beyond what we have accomplished today.

CEO Terry Mathis and President and COO Shawn Galloway of ProAct Safety, a global provider of safety excellence strategies, were recognized in EHS Today Magazine’s list of The 50 People Who Most Influenced EHS in 2012-2013. The magazine, which provides a professional forum for environmental, health and safety matters, recognized the two principals of ProAct Safety for their definitive book on safety strategies, titled STEPS to Safety Culture ExcellenceSM.

Mathis and Galloway’s safety book contains practical education with the same philosophy that has made the company a leader in safety excellence: quality over quantity. The top-down methods they champion help companies assess strategies to fit their particular needs, offering long-term, quality solutions to help safety tactics stick. ProAct Safety is known, not only for the book, but for their popular safety podcast and safety consulting services. EHS Today’s recognition is one of several affirmations ProAct Safety’s principals have received recently.

Mathis said, “EHS Today has been an essential voice for our industry, allowing business leaders and professionals to see the big picture. This list is an important guide to who is changing the way we do our work. It is a great honor that EHS Today has included us.”

The robust safety information published in EHS Today, including the contributions by Mathis and Galloway, is designed to help guide the industry. “We need more iconoclastic leaders in our industry, more people who will challenge the status quo and think beyond what we have accomplished today,” said Galloway. “We want to extend our congratulations to the others named in this list, and express our gratitude to EHS Today for this honor, as well as for the content they deliver that is so vital to our work.”
