It looks like a great place to see other people’s perspectives on safety from their industry and position. Regs are regs and we each interpret and apply them differently. The more views we have the better we can see to make a difference in someone’s life.

I thank you for your invitation. I look forward to discovering, learning, growing and sharing you with you so we can make a difference.

Thanks Jeff
