The anecdotal evidence suggests that the accident rate at secondary and post-secondary institutions in the United States is 10 to 50 times greater than in the chemical industry. And, it’s 100-500 times greater than at companies like Dow and DuPont. Now there's a simple and inexpensive solution. Learn about it on December 17 when Dr. Kaufman talks about how leaders can cost effectively create a more effective organizational environmental, health and safety program.
