It’s a basic human right to have a safe place to work.

…That’s the thought on which my work is predicated.

Early in my training, I had friends and colleagues in graduate school who helped children with Autism learn to attend schools in ‘regular’ education classrooms. They helped people with severe and profound disabilities to learn to feed them selves and in some cases live independently.

In fact, behavioral science is the only science-based system recognized as effective in the treatment of autism and profound disabilities.

I got involved, worked in schools with kids who had ‘behavior problems’, with their teachers, their parents.  It was not unusual to see massive and positive behavioral changes in just weeks or months.

These are tough problems. Intractable problems. Some would say they are unsolvable.  Many of us around the world know this is not true.

I started to wonder, if we can solve the most difficult behavioral problems the world has to offer, what could we do with worker safety?

The answer is…. A LOT.

My why is to help people to create safer work environments.
