In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, Aimee is talking about putting your values into action outside of the workplace.
If you hold safety as a value, how is that impacting your decisions as a consumer outside of the workplace?
This is a topic I’m very passionate about. I hold safety as a value, safety for the environment, safety for the people, and that’s just so deeply integrated internal code of ethics, with my personal morals, and my personal values that it impacts the products that I am buying, who I want to work for and work with, as well as a lot of my decision-making.
I know that not everyone thinks about safety as I do, and that’s okay. However, this is something that many have never stopped to think about, and as Health & Safety professionals or practitioners and, most importantly, as humans, we should take it into consideration.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- The story of when I first realized not everybody thinks about safety as a value in the same way I do
- Not all organizations need to hold safety as a value directly
- The importance of paying attention to the supply chain and who really owns the company you’re buying from
- You can make a difference if it’s in your financial power to do so
- Put your values into action by being a more conscious consumer
The Transmit Safety Podcast is here to help health and safety practitioners achieve a holistic approach to workplace health and safety so they can become impactful leaders and put the value of safety into action.

Quotes from this episode
“If I hold safety as a value for myself, and I say that safety is a value for myself, I find it … really hard to say that ‘yes, I am going to purchase this product from this company’, knowing that they are not aligned with my definition of safety and or hold that safety as a value.”
“I don’t think that organizations need to have safety plastered up on their wall as a value or need to include safety in their mission statement. I think if you have certain other values that your organization holds, safety is engaged and included and integrated within that.”
“Let’s be honest, businesses are in business to be in business. And we have through our dollars, through our decisions of purchasing those products to hold them accountable to a certain level of safety to a certain level of environmental protection.”
