This presentation will use a combination of powerpoint slides, pictures, video clips and short stories to challenge traditional safety measures and inspire the audience to Actively CARE.  It will demonstrate the need to shift our focus to Serious Injury and Fatality (SIF) prevention and outline ways to Control and Remove Exposures (C.A.R.E.) that lead to SIF’s.  It will also highlight critical behaviors of senior leaders and supervisors needed to create a Culture of C.A.R.E.
