Join MSCI and Andrea Lankford, Corporate Director of Safety of Reliance Steel & Aluminum on Thursday, June 24th for an overview of the safety program Reliance implemented to generate engagement, accountability, commitment, and encourage a sense of urgency against complacency at every level throughout the organization.

Reliance successfully created and deployed a safety program that effectively communicates a message that ensures employees at all levels understand WHY they should perform safely. The message is straightforward and can relate to every employee: by Making Safety Personal, every employee can connect a personal experience to be safe at work. The days of providing training and hoping for the best outcome have proven how not to affect a positive safety culture. Today’s employees thrive on information; however, knowledge alone does not connect the dots. Knowing the WHY and relating to the WHY leads to buy-in, and the S.M.A.R.T. method has helped employees not only thrive at work but at home as well.

No matter the size of your organization, the information Andrea will share is applicable to companies of all sizes and all safety professionals. We all have a common goal to make the metals industry safer and the more we share with one another is a step forward in that direction.
