Platform Statement

The Society must remain relevant to all generations in the workplace. There is usually agreement across all generations in valuing safety & health however, an approach that motivates one generation may not be as effective with another generation. Values and priorities of all workers are not always in alignment in many aspects within the workplace. Changes in our daily lives are moving faster and faster. It is crucial for the Society to continue to listen to our members’ needs: to provide education, resources and tools in a variety of formats and to provide opportunities for mentorships if we are to achieve our strategic goals.

Safety professionals today do their jobs very differently than the way things were done in the 80s, 90s, even the early 2000s. The Society must continue to offer accessible and valuable tools and resources that match the workplace as it is today and that are accessible and fit into today’s work environments and lifestyles. There are new hazards in today’s workplaces and more yet to be invented that will need controls we cannot even imagine. To help safety professionals stay relevant in a workplace that is becoming more diverse, more global and faster paced, the Society must continue to provide safety and health tools for the evolving workplace of tomorrow.

If I am re-elected to the Board, I will continue to bring a perspective aligned with that of the greater Society’s membership at large. With my strong background in occupational health as well as my many years of experience in safety, I consider my knowledge, skills and experience to be simply an alternate route to achieving the same goal as that of a safety engineer: a safe workplace for all workers!
