What is the Simply Seamless Safety® Institute?
The Safety Institute was founded by Carl Potter, Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and Dr. Deb Potter, both well-known experts in the area of safety leadership.
The Simply Seamless Safety® Institute (SSS®I) is here to provide safety information that will improve an organization's safety culture.
Every year in the U.S. alone, more than 4300 workers lose their lives as a result of injury and illness that occurs while doing their jobs. Tens of thousands more are injured, perhaps for a lifetime; the cost to the U.S. economy alone is $54,300,000,000 annually – that’s more than $1 billion per week. While most of us may work our entire lives without a job-related injury or illness, too many around us aren’t so fortunate. Much more can be done to educate ourselves and others in how to recognize and control hazards so that everyone can go home every day without injury or illness.
With a global perspective on preventing every workplace injury, Carl Potter, Certified Safety Professional (CSP) and Deb Potter, PhD decided to make their decades of safety and management work available in one, easily accessible site on the world-wide web –www.SafetyInstitute.com. By working with the Safety Institute, you will have access to their decades of research, writings, training and other information so you can join the cause of creating a workplace where zero-injuries is a reality.
