Safety Drives Profitability

CEO Corner

Dear Heidi,

Most business across the US are driven by the dollar. That is why everyone is in business, correct? Every factor is figured, production is maximized, and we increase efficiency to push schedule to the breaking point with the result of more return. But where is safety?

For years our industry has failed or been reluctant in tying profitability to safety. This is a huge mistake. Safety drives the profitability each and every time. When safety is fully embraced it sets forth a culture that will earn more revenue than any other factor in business today. I know it has worked for us, and there are many more successful businesses that have wholly backed safety, and the results are extraordinary.
