Fay’s Fellow Speech

I love safety, let me repeat that, I LOVE safety.

Being named a Fellow means the world to me. Safety is at the foundation of meaningful lives and safety professionals are uniquely qualified to be stewards of workplace safety.

I’m named after my mother’s mother, Bubbee Fagel. She came to America as a young widow with seven children, she knew safety. I’m proud to carry on her legacy

Huge thanks to my petition sponsor, Mike Murray and thanks to all who shared this idea that I could model leadership for our next gen by becoming the fourth female Fellow.

To my handsome husband Don, thanks babe. Your sacrifice of our time enabled this achievement. To my own next gen, my great-niece Charlotte Fay, along with her parents, Meredith and Knolan – thanks for being in the audience today.

Let’s talk about you and your role in making work safe for people. For those who speak to hard hats, I admire you. My career has been in conference rooms speaking to hard heads.

Our business value in a rapidly changing world requires anticipating new risks. We must now integrate a strategic risk approach along with compliance assurance. We do so by listening to all views, including opposing ones.

I urge you to connect your safety efforts to equality of opportunity. Right the wrongs of the system in building an inclusive, safe culture that provides a fair process for all. Be the voice with leadership making a business case for investing in people or as investors call us, human capital.

I ask you to See Something, Say Something, Do Something.

And as a past ASSE Foundation board chair, I challenge you to invest in the future of our profession by giving to the ASSE Foundation.

Let’s move the needle and “make the world of work safer, healthier and sustainable.” Thank you.
