Today we’re going to walk through how Executives should act and behave Before, During and After conducting Executive safety walks. We’re also going to look back at the safety walks conducted by BP and Transocean VIPs only seven hours before the Deepwater Horizon oil rig blowout in 2010 that killed 11 workers, so that you can learn from their mistakes. If you’re not conducting safety walks, or just want a bit more guidance and assurance on your approach, today’s post is for you.
