  1. Ricky D. Logan says:

    Thank you for your innovative approach to saftey. I have worked in the strip mining profession for 34 yrs. I am on the steering committee of our Behaviorial Based Saftey team.I totally agree that saftey should be built into our culture.Most job locations have it so institutionalized that it does not seem genuine and heart felt. Caring for each other and watching each others back should be built in to our psyche. We should work safe because it is the right thing to do, not because you could be wrote up if you make a mistake. Thank you again for your articles and innovative approach.
