Local Business Mavericks is a compilation of one-on-one conversations with some of the top entrepreneurs in their industry designed to share their strategies to overcome the toughest obstacles standing in the way of their customers’ success.
Edwards’ insight into safety culture for businesses all over the globe is based on over 15 years of experience and is right on target.
He states, “People are insulated from danger these days to such a degree that they have stopped using their safety and risk muscles. They are too busy wrapping people in bubble wrap or using reams of paper to indemnify an organisation against the customer or a worker. They have a reluctance to embrace safety. Excuses like ‘It’s too time consuming’ or ‘There’s too much paperwork, it’s over the top.’ That way of thinking is dangerous.”
Edwards has made headlines quite a bit recently, most notably for helping multinational companies reclaim productivity by implementing practical applications of safety systems and structures.
It’s most likely for this reason that many people Internationally consider him the most real and relevant Safety Culture Expert in tune with the marketplace today.
Spike Edward’s deep-seated desire to tackle problem areas for CEOs and Business Leaders was driven by a near death encounter he experienced at 25 while serving with an elite Special Forces unit. Then, a seemingly insignificant accident which occurred to his wife went on to destroy his immediate family structure as they knew it. These events drove Spike to work tirelessly to crack the safety code so others would never suffer such loss.
