Your employees will appreciate it, too, and want to participate in looking out for themselves, each other and the organization as a whole.

A safety culture in the workplace doesn’t just mean certain workers will do things like wear the proper protective equipment or maintain machinery – it means your crew will work together to make sure everyone is following the proper procedures and staying aware of hazards.
