Communication Strategy: Supporting Safety Through Words and Deeds:
Leaders, either by title or influence, constantly send messages that shape others’ attitudes and drive their behaviors. Intentionally or unintentionally, every communication and action from a leader tells a story about what’s important to him/her. Learn how you can build a strong communication strategy, especially during uncertain times, to demonstrate your commitment to safety and drive safe behavior throughout the entire organization.

Presenter: Abby Fansler, MS, Communication Consultant, Caterpillar Safety Services
Demonstrating Commitment: Taking Safety from the Office to the Frontline:

It starts with leading by example, but true leadership goes beyond wearing proper PPE and ensuring others do the same. Learn tips to create and sustain a culture of positive safety performance through leadership, communication, training and recognition.

Presenter: Justin Ganschow, CHMM, CSP, Business Development Manager, Caterpillar Safety Services
