Book Description for No Compromise: The Truth About Workplace Safety & Business Success

Do you believe workplace safety is too expensive, begins and ends with adherence to OSHA standards, and inhibits production and profit margins?

Do you desire to advance in your trade, better understand your organization’s business goals, and learn how to prove yourself a valuable team member?

Ken Sheridan’s 40-plus years in the construction, utility, and distribution industries taught him several important lessons: everyone should end their workday fully intact; safety is the smartest business plan when it exceeds personal protection equipment (PPE); and employees who embrace a safety-focused culture are impactful leaders, creative problem solvers, and valuable business stewards.

No Compromise lays out a clear path for a cultural approach to business success through safety. Such a culture shift is woven into human resources and supply departments; establishes a clear path for apprentices; and creates support for stakeholders, employees, communities, and business partners.
