Galloway’s session is based on his best-selling book, Lean BBS: Behavior-Based Safety for Today’s Realities.

Customizing the process for each organization’s culture, logistics, and leadership is crucial to continued success and sustainability.

Mathis’s session, “Using Existing Safety Programs to Address SIFs,” details ways to utilize and redirect current efforts to focus more on serious injuries and fatalities. “Balanced Scorecard for Safety” discusses leading and value-based indicators that should be measured to have upstream data rather than only relying on lagging indicators. “The Four Core Components of Safety Excellence” discusses how a few crucial endeavors, in the right order, are necessary for a company to achieve excellence.
