Build a Safety Culture That Succeeds by Avoiding These Mistakes

An organization’s culture has more impact than you may realize. With refuse and recycling being one of the most dangerous jobs in America, it’s especially important to have a culture of safety. A safety culture can help improve your operational performance, productivity, and morale.

According to Deloitte, a US-based consulting firm, there is a correlation between those who feel valued and happy at work with those who say their organization has a clearly articulated and embodied culture. A large part of living the culture is employee engagement. Organizations with engaged employees experience 48% fewer safety collisions, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found.

But, getting an entire organization to feel excited about safety is not an easy task. So how do you inspire the entire organization to rally around safety?

Join us and industry-leading Waste Connections as we walk through the three key things to keep in mind when you are implementing and continually developing your safety culture.    

In this webinar, we'll discuss:

  • Best practices to help you improve your organizational culture around safety: Communicate, Motivate, Initiate.
  • The importance of building and continually growing a solid safety culture.
  • Easy to implement ideas to help impact your safety culture from leading experts.
