The saddest days of my manufacturing career were those when one of my employees got hurt. The day I was introduced to the application of behavioral science to human endeavors, my life changed forever. To borrow a slogan from a past client, “Zero (accidents) is possible.” I absolutely love having the privilege of introducing and talking about behavioral safety to those who could benefit from it.—Mike Johnson
