If a company doesn't formulate a safety strategy to support its business strategy, safety efforts can actually hinder or constrict business strategy.

ProAct Safety, a recognized pioneer of leadership and safety excellence strategies, announced the company's president, Shawn M. Galloway, is scheduled to deliver the keynote speech at the 2015 PPSA Annual Conference. His presentation will encourage attendees to increase focus on safety strategy as a way of aligning with and adding value to business strategy. The keynote, titled “Strategy: The Missing Component of Safety Excellence,” is scheduled on Tuesday, June 9 from 8:10am to 9:40am.

The focus of the PPSA conference is improving safety performance through employee engagement. Galloway's keynote speech will demonstrate how safety strategy can help employees understand the far-reaching impact of safety. Strategy helps employees and leaders become passionate advocates of safety efforts that positively affect all different areas of an organization. According to Galloway, companies often focus too much on failing less, rather than adding value.

"If a company doesn't formulate a safety strategy to support its business strategy, safety efforts can actually hinder or constrict business strategy," Galloway said. "Focusing on strategy rather than safety quotas or activities ensures effort is concentrated on where it will make the most difference." Galloway is known for helping organizations throughout the world turn safety into a strategic competitive advantage.
