In our latest episode of NYS Manufacturing Now, FuzeHub’s Steve Melito tackles the vital issue of safety culture in manufacturing with Jim Testo, president of EHS Risk Management and a nationally recognized leader in the development and implementation of corporate programs for environmental, health, and safety (EHS). Jim brings to light the evolution of safety practices in manufacturing, starting from the 1980s, shedding light on the differences between compliance and risk management. Learn about the far-reaching consequences of neglecting risk management programs – from skyrocketing insurance costs to hefty fines and litigations. Hear first-hand accounts from manufacturers who, despite their best efforts, sometimes witness accidents.

Join us as we explore how technology has transformed workplace safety. From seatbelt alarms to auto-stop cars, discover how implementing such programs can lead to significant cost avoidance. Hear why the younger generation is more likely to adhere to safety protocols and how equipping business leaders with the right information can help them make sound decisions. Also, don’t miss out on the discussion on Paul O’Neill’s tenure as Alcoa’s CEO and how his commitment to safety had a positive impact on the company’s success. The episode wraps up with a sneak peek into the upcoming New York State Innovation Summit that promises to showcase state-of-the-art products and technologies.
