“Shawn’s presentation not only speaks to their day-to-day needs, but also challenges them to think about safety in a way that can transform their operations from the bottom up.”

Shawn M. Galloway, President and COO of ProAct Safety, a recognized pioneer of safety excellence strategies, kicked off the AEU Regional Forum at The Westin Long Beach in California last week.

Hosted by The American Equity Underwriters, Inc. (AEU), the nation’s leading provider of workers’ compensation to waterfront employers, AEU Regional Forums are one-day seminars throughout the year to provide educational information to waterfront employers related to leadership, loss control, workers’ compensation claims handling, and safety culture development.

Galloway’s 11 February keynote, 2020: A Vision of Safety Excellence, will be presented at additional Forums, which are planned in Lafayette, LA on 2 June and Jacksonville, FL on 9 September.

Keynote description: Do you know where your organization is on your journey to safety excellence? Do you know where to go next and how to proceed? How would you like to stop thinking and start knowing? Based on work with the best safety-performing organizations across all major industries, ProAct Safety has identified four commonalities among the most excellent organizations in safety performance and culture. Shawn Galloway will examine these four components in detail and explore how they synergize to produce excellent, sustainable results.
In this session, you will:

  • Learn the four things that companies with excellent safety performance and culture have in common
  • Learn how these four things work together to create optimal safety results
  • Learn practices you can implement to improve safety performance

“Many of the attendees of our Forums are safety professionals, so we look for speakers who can address topics that will resonate with them,” said Woody Collins of AEU, who organizes the events. “Shawn’s presentation not only speaks to their day-to-day needs, but also challenges them to think about safety in a way that can transform their operations from the bottom up.”
