January 2022 Meeting – Safety Leadership

Our January 18th meeting was a huge success.  Over thirty safety professionals from the Rochester community joined us to hear Bruce Bolger speak on Transformational Safety Leadership.  He spoke about Sponsor-Target-Agent and how that philosophy can help you create a safer and more compliant workplace for your company.  Bruce spent time outlining Emotional Intelligence and how it applies to everything we do.  My favorite line was, “Let me tell you a story.”  That line can be used to gain attention and explain your viewpoint in a way that is understood.

Thanks to all that attended,
Jim Christiano

Presented by: Derrick Day and Roger Zaccour of the Stark Tech Groups

This presentation covers different strategies and technologies to achieve better indoor air quality.  We will be going through Humidification, Filtration, UV-C, and control/monitoring.  Each building is different, and these strategies will need to be applied with an understanding of the goal and use of the building.  The best solution is always a combination of multiple strategies.  Proper execution and education will lead to healthier buildings.
