SUMMER OF SAFETY
“If you want to understand how Egis is doing, you need to look at our workplace safety figures. If we bring our incident rates down, it won’t be because of cheerleading or the nonsense you sometimes hear from other Companies. It will be because the individuals at this company have agreed to become part of something important: They’ve devoted themselves to creating a habit of excellence. Safety will be an indicator that we’re making progress in changing our habits across the entire institution.” That’s how we should be judged.”
