Dear list members:
At our University-wide safety meeting this morning, while we were reviewing incidents on campus, our VP (Admin) asked what I think is a critical string of questions:

How do some organizations achieve a zero incident level? Examples include the nuclear industry, and our local fire station. Clearly they have a strong safety culture. So, how
do we enhance our safety culture to bring us towards that goal? Could we get an expert to advise us?
This is not a chemistry question, but an institutional one. But I immediately thought of the D-chas group, where there are so many experts on safety.
If there is anyone out there who would be interested in exploring this through giving us a seminar, and/or or spending perhaps a day with us, do please contact me off-list. Some knowledge of the Canadian safety landscape would be useful, but we are really
looking at the bigger picture. We do not have an approved budget, but some compensation may well be possible. This could take place on-line, or perhaps in-person once the border re-opens.
Best wishes and safe work to all.
