In the last 25 years, safety and compliance professionals have gone from an often-marginalized voice in their organizations to having great influence and even key seats in C-suites and boardrooms. Today, consumers—empowered with better information and communication tools—are now firmly in the driver’s seat, demanding transparency into the safety of the products they consume every day. This is causing huge changes in the interaction, processes and technology used to manage safety. Our panel will talk about how safety compliance and their jobs have changed over time, and how they envision the future.
