THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 5, 2018
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Terry L. Mathis, founder and chief executive officer of ProAct Safety, spoke at the Georgia Institute of Technology on October 25, 2018. The PMOSH program, which uses STEPS to Safety Culture Excellence as a textbook, utilizes industry experts as presenters to produce future leaders in safety.
Mathis took the opportunity to speak to students about the value of creating the right climate and chemistry in the workplace to facilitate sustainable safety excellence.
Mathis says, "The biggest mistake organizations make in developing an excellent safety culture is doing too much at once. Culture must be improved a STEP at a time to make effective change, and trying to do it all at once is a formula for failure." STEPS (Strategic Targets for Excellent Performance in Safety) demystifies the process of developing a successful safety culture by breaking it down into small, logical, internally-led tasks. It continues to be a best seller on Amazon.
