Organizations focus on making safety a priority, a value, and an integral responsibility, with the perception, real or not, that it must compete with production.

ProAct Safety, the global leader and pioneer of safety excellence strategies, will present a one-of-a-kind session at the 2015 Annual Iowa-Illinois Safety Council (IISC) Professional Development Conference in Dubuque, Iowa. The session, which will take place at the Grand River Center/Grand Harbor Resort & Waterpark on April 22, 2015, is titled “Capturing and Delivering Value: The Strategy of Safety Excellence.” The session will clearly demonstrate why organizations need to stop simply making safety a priority and instead integrate business practices into safety thinking.

“Too often, attempts to improve safety include language such as ‘safety first’ and ‘safety mindset,’” said Galloway. “Organizations focus on making safety a priority, a value, and an integral responsibility, with the perception, real or not, that it must compete with production.” Galloway explained that safety efforts will fail if they compete with production, which is the driver of business revenue. Instead, he said, “Safety should support rather than conflict with production, with the organization making a framework of choices that capture and deliver real value. Safety must support business growth, not compete with or constrict it.”

According to Galloway, the IISC conference session he leads will demonstrate for attendees how best-performing organizations “develop and execute against a strategy that recognizes zero injuries is a byproduct of the value of safety excellence, not the goal.”
