As Sir Francis Bacon once said, “Knowledge is Power”. A very true statement that should cause us all to think. In the safety industry, we are given multiple opportunities every year to learn about the latest safety products, procedures, and government rulings. Many take advantage of organizations such as NSC or National Safety Council to assist in filtering this information. Many attend trade shows like the NSC Congress and Expo, World of Concrete, VPPPA Annual National Convention , or regional events such as the Tennessee Safety and Health Congress. Others attend online trade shows, webinars, and video presentations.
No matter the tool you use to get the correct information, my word for you today is, “GET KNOWLEDGE!”
As a safety professional it is all of our duty to stay up to date with changes in the industry to products and standards. We have to remember that what we do everyday is provide services, products, and assistance to help save lives and protect the worker. If we are uninformed we cannot make the right decisions.
