â€œSara Hansen, our director of risk management, and her Risk Management team take great pride in elevating our internal safety practice throughout our organization,â€ said Southwest Behavioral & Health Services Chief Quality Officer Erica Missicano. â€œEven through the midst of a global pandemic, our organization has achieved 100 percent adherence to following our internal safety procedures. This achievement could not have been accomplished without Risk Managementâ€™s continual emphasis on the importance of safety in the workplace and for our employees.â€
According to Janas, inversion is a safety model and philosophy, that, taking its name from the inverted version of the safety pyramid, suggests that there are just as many proactive efforts that lead to zero incidents as the traditional concept of a more reactive philosophy.
