Creating a Safety Culture from Scratch w/ Shain Abdoelrahman


In this episode, Apolonia talks with Shain Abdoelrahman, CEO and co-owner of Heavy Construction Academy, in Suriname (which is a country on the north coast of South America).

Apolonia and Shain explore:

* How as a young girl Shain grew up around heavy construction equipment

* How safety regulations weren’t enforced much in Suriname when Shain started working in safety, and she had to create her own safety procedures and training from scratch.

* The challenge of teaching people safety.

* Changing the mindset of workers around safety.

* How safety leaders need to have one-to-one conversations with people about safety incidents.

* Researching how people behave, and how their behavior impacts safety.
