Is building a business case for Safety, Health and Employee Wellbeing important?

On this episode of our Safety View Andy Barker, Rosa Antonia Carrillo and Tamara Parris host our discussion about building a business case for Safety, Health and Employee Wellbeing.

In the session we (our community) discuss “What is the "business case" for funding environmental, health and safety?” because safety professionals, and others who work with people, spend an inordinate amount of time gathering data to justify our initiatives.


Each one-hour session is hosted by an expert or stakeholder in safety performance. And each session invites all attendees to participate, listen, and learn from each other and through conversation and shared experiences. Collectively, we explore the human system’s impact on safety and performance - relationally, psychologically, and socially.

After a brief introduction to the topic and sharing of relevant research, the floor will be open for group conversation. We invite ALL to share their thoughts, and will openly embrace - actually encourage - different perspectives. We really want to hear from all, from those who can share measurable, scientific concepts, those who have knowledge gained from experience, and those who intend to learn and understand more.

Regular Hosts of the Safety View are:

Rosa Carrillo author of The Relationship Factor in Safety Leadership, safety leadership consultant, MS in Organizational development.

Tamara Parris, Community Development, Bachelors of Social Work, Occupational Health and Safety, and Emergency Management.

Please share out the below details on Social with your network! It all happens every 1st Thursday of the month at 11 a.m. EST, 4 p.m. GM Register Now
