The ISRI Board determined in 2006 that for the safety culture message to gain the greatest traction, ISRI needed to communicate face-to-face with our members and thus they directed the ISRISafety staff to “hit the road,” delivering the safety message to members at their own facilities, free of charge, as a benefit of membership.
