About the Program: How can workplaces be effective? The cost to companies, and the community, from workplace injuries and illnesses is significant. How can companies address these hazards, be competitive, and be profitable? OSHA standards are just the beginning. Workplace health and safety needs to be managed just like quality, marketing, finance and any other business activity.

Key Points of the Program:

  • The impact of workplace health and safety on the company and community
  • The role of regulations in workplace safety
  • Main elements of safety and health management programs
  • Resources available to assist companies in improving safety

He is a certified safety professional, certified industrial hygienist, and registered professional engineer. In addition to his work with WisCon, he also teaches at UW Whitewater.  

What is Business X-Change?
