“The safety culture at Forbes is unique”

I enjoy working at Forbes because I am part of successfully affecting change. The environment is progressive and proactive, allowing changes that best suit everyone on the crews and across the company. The safety culture at Forbes is unique. Each and every person who works here believes in and supports our safety program. Not because they feel that they have to, but rather because they believe in it and feel/see the value in safety success. I know that my coworkers are looking out for me and vice versa. I have been in the EHS trade for over 16 years and everyday here I learn something new. People take time to explain and learn together in an environment where questions and learning are encouraged from all levels. I am a part of something much bigger than myself, yet I am still treated as an individual who’s thoughts, suggestions, and ideas matter.
