This year’s theme, “Safety Starts with Me,” was inspired by the pillar of Leadership and Employee Engagement from the Journey to Safety Excellence.Successful organizations engage everyone in safety and create a culture where people feel a personal responsibility not only for their own safety, but for that of their coworkers, family and friends. While leadership from the top is important, creating a culture where there is a sense of ownership of safety by all, makes everyone in the organization a safety leader.
