Workplace safety affects the health, safety and welfare of the workforce. Occupational safety specialists investigate the workplace environment, analyze the workplace procedures and environmental hazards, and design protocols to create a safe work environment. Their goal is to prevent diseases and injuries by adhering to government safety regulations.
Professionals in the field of occupational health and safety (OHS) as well as workplace health and safety (WHS) are concerned with the hazards in a work environment. Our guest for this week’s edition of Top Career 100, South Carolina Division Safety Director Jody Patronella, is one such professional.
