Spot On Safety

Excellent safety is not hard but sometimes finding the right information is. The ocean of safety information is vast, so we shine a spotlight on one specific topic in each podcast. We reveal the secret handshakes that can't be found by reading regulations. Sometimes this information comes from letters of interpretation, compliance directives, citation experience and, of course, decades of experience in safety. Spot on Safety is intended for safety professionals, managers, supervisors, and anyone responsible for implementing a safety program. Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
