The Rising Stars of Safety

  • What is the Rising Stars of Safety Program?

    The Rising Stars of Safety is an elite group of young safety professionals from a variety of professional backgrounds who have been established among their peers as the next generation in safety culture and leadership.

    The Rising Stars program showcases up-and-coming safety professionals younger than 40 who have a track record of demonstrating leadership, innovation and involvement in their organization’s safety culture while promoting continuous safety improvement in the workplace.
