Dow puts safety at the forefront of everything it does. In April 2022, Dow’s Corporate Facilities team achieved a milestone to celebrate. Two-years, injury free totaling over 3.5 million hours across all regions. We explore how a trusted partnership and relationship was an integral part of being ‘open for business’, mitigating potential hazards, reducing injuries and sending everyone home safely, every day during the turbulent times of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Now, how do you move forward with purpose? The panel will discuss how Dow was – and is – able to partner with Newmark to continue its safety performance and how it plans on continuing and building on its ‘safety culture’ throughout its global operations.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand how a successful safety culture – with buy-in by everyone – can be created.

  • Moving forward, how do you maintain safety, make it repeatable for organizational culture, disparate industries and varying degrees of need and move forward with purpose.
