Are You Responsible For Safety At Your Business?
Are you the company’s safety manager? Even if you don’t have the title, are you the person who is responsible for safety policies and procedures at your facility? If so, would you like to connect with others in the building supply industry who are responsible for overseeing safety? BMSA is offering an online forum for safety professionals to connect, support and develop their safety know-how. Learn about specific requirements, compliance measures, how to get buy-in from employees and much more. 
Ask questions and bounce ideas off of others who walk in your shoes. 
If you are interested in learning more about this safety forum, contact
