Safety Storytellers: Scott DeBow of Avetta

On this week’s episode, Stacey is joined by Scott DeBow, Principal HS&E expert at Avetta, a provider of supply chain risk management software.

Stacey and Scott discuss:

  • How wonderful it would be if kids dreamed of entering into the safety profession when they grow up.
  • How the safety industry is always a challenge.
  • That safety should never be boring, yet it’s hard to make, say, compliance interesting at a human level.
  • The following common safety assumption: “if we reduce the frequency of safety incidents, then we’ll also reduce the severity of safety incidents.”
  • How people closest to the risk are the richest source of intel.
  • Scott’s working title (which is very tongue-in-cheek!) for his next book is “I’m Sorry I Stuck My Finger In Your Eye, But It Was Necessary”! (You’ll have to listen to the whole podcast to get this one!)
