    Speaker:  Dennis Parnell

    Topic: ​ Establishing a Safety Culture for Your Workplace

    Having a safe and productive workplace is about more than establishing safety rules and putting guards on machines.  Studies show that our workers attitude and mindset have much more to do with having a safe workplace than the physical things we do to keep our employees safe.  Our speaker, Dennis Parnell, will discuss how we can establish a culture of safety in our companies.

Dennis retired in 2003 from the Roanoke Rapids Sanitary District where he spent 23 years as a water plant operator, maintenance supervisor and safety officer. He also is a member of various safety and health organizations in North Carolina. He has been in the safety field for more than 30 years.
