Michael Brown, CSP Retired


I can discuss issues relating to the successful integration of comprehensive occupational safety and health practices into the successful operation of a manufacturing facility including production, quality and maintenance functions. My emphasis has been on supervisory training and the development of goals and measurement processes along with high levels of employee involvement. I always stressed the cost of accidents and their negative impact on the financial stability of operating units.


I worked in manufacturing/production (primarily forest products) in excess of twenty years. In my last employment (before retirement due to a stroke) I was responsible for the safety and health function for a division which had approximately 20 plants ranging from 25 employees to 600 employees. I interfaced with the safety staff at the locations and the managers and supervisors. I also worked with the support personnel including timber operations the headquarters staff and a flight department.
