Culture of Safety in the Workplace

To manage a large workforce in any industry requires a commitment to keeping the workforce safe, but in a work environment that has high hazards, that commitment must be absolute and mission-central. UCOR President and CEO Ken Rueter will discuss the culture of safety that his company has established among its 1,800 employees at multiple worksites at the Oak Ridge Reservation. Rueter will share why UCOR has chosen to take a shared governance approach to ensure that all parties participate in ensuring a safety conscious work environment. In addition, he will share how UCOR leaders demonstrate the whole company belief that “safety is a prerequisite to all we do” and talk about various programs the company has in place to create ongoing awareness of that commitment
