HOUSTON (PRWEB) June 23, 2020
Shawn M. Galloway, President and COO of ProAct Safety, a recognized pioneer of safety excellence strategies, kicked off the EHS Now Virtual Summit, on 17 June 2020. This free online educational event allowed EHS professionals to develop their learning and skills remotely in this era of social distancing.
“COVID-19 has not just caused a temporary interruption to our everyday lives, it has ushered in a new reality. The time to plan for that new reality is now. The basic principles of safety will not change, but the strategies and tactics must. All change impacts safety, and leaders need to address these changes with strategic planning and proactive practices,” says Galloway. “This presentation addressed how to maintain a focus on and in safety as we transition to a new normal.”
