GEAPS 541: Developing an Effective Safety Culture at Your Company is a brand new course on evaluating and improving company “safety culture.” Safety specialists, including Chris Goulart of RCI Safety, lead participants through lectures on what "safety culture" really means, what makes a strong versus weak safety culture and why practicing safety is always a good business decision.
