Safety Leadership Walkthroughs: What’s Our Focus?

safety-leadership and process safetyMany of us already do a pretty good job in our safety leadership walkthroughs to identify and call attention to personal, occupational safety hazards, such as slips, trips and falls.  They’re easy to focus on because usually they’re static, concrete, observable and easily identifiable.  A trip hazard becomes pretty obvious to the trained eye.  The problem is, we sometimes focus so much on that, that we end up neglecting process-safety hazards.
