Are we managing our safety culture or being managed by it?

ProAct Safety, a global safety consultancy and pioneer in leadership and safety excellence strategies, announced the company’s president and chief operating officer, Shawn M. Galloway, will deliver one of two keynote speeches at the 40th annual ASSE Region III Professional Development Conference (PDC). The conference will take place in Galveston, Texas, September 20 – 23, 2015, at the Moody Gardens Hotel and Convention Center. The title of Galloway’s keynote speech is “Stop Trying to Create a Safety Culture, Evolve the One You Have.” He will also present one of the general sessions, discussing ways to change safety management culture. Both presentations will take place Monday, September 21, 2015.

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) is the oldest and largest professional safety organization, with more than 37,000 members worldwide. ASSE Region III is comprised of 15 chapters across the states of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas.

Galloway, an internationally recognized safety expert and professional keynote speaker, said organizations need to stop asking whether they have a safety culture and instead ask themselves, “Are we managing our safety culture or being managed by it? Safety culture is not new,” Galloway explained. “Safety goals should be focused on strategically improving the influential safety culture that already exists in most companies.”

Galloway’s general session is titled “The Transformational Leader: From Hands and Feet to Hearts and Minds.” He will show safety leaders how to evolve safety management from a have-to culture to a want-to culture. Galloway will leverage his years of experience with hundreds of organizations to review misconceptions about safety that can keep companies from achieving the safety goals they desire.
