The world is a dangerous place. Mitigating risk in the work place, whether natural or man-made, is a critical skill and big business. In fact, according to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), businesses spend $170 billion each year on costs associated with occupational injuries and illness. It’s no wonder that employers seek out safety professionals to protect their personnel, property and profits.
