I’vebeen luckyenough tobe involvedwithandhave chaired theCommittee for over five years. In that time, we’ve seen the Committee grow in participation, grow its reputation with regulators and contribute to the state of industry safety knowledge. It has been an absolute pleasure to hear and see the success of retailers in their efforts to make their workplaces healthier and safer for teammembers, customers and contractors. “ ” Keith Govias - National Health and Safety Manager, The Reject Shop
