Join our Grassroots Movement to Make Workplace Safety the Next "Earth Day"!
Back in the ‘70s, no one predicted that environmentalism would become the gigantic social movement that it is today.
Back then, corporations often didn’t take the poisoning of the planet all that seriously; they argued against ecologically-friendly commerce, claiming that…
"It will cost us too much to clean up the mess."
"Environmental issues are too complex for the average person to understand."
"Only hippies and radicals really are concerned."
But look at what happened! The year 1970 heralded the birth of:
Notice how the grassroots movement (ordinary people) pre-dated government action!
Fast Forward to Today…
Many companies are still dragging its feet on implementing best practices in workplace health and safety. They say…
"Safety compliance will cost us too much."
"The issues around workplace safety and health are too complex for the average person to understand."
"Only union reps really care about safety issues."
NOT TRUE! We care - as employers, employees, educators and parents. Because being safe and healthy at work is a basic human right – as basic as having clean air and water.
Companies have been forced to clean up their toxic ways that affect the world outside their facilities. Let’s start applying pressure for the same kind of stewardship INSIDE their factories and offices, oil rigs and mines, farms and stores.
The health and safety of workers is the next frontier - the "new green" – for people looking to make a difference in our quality of life. We can take heart from what eco-pioneers have achieved.
Join the grassroots movement for workplace safety and health – and we’ll see businesses around the world change their ways!
