Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) and Safety Management Systems: A Talk with Kahlilah Guyah

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) and Safety Management Systems: A Talk with Kahlilah Guyah

Our society and workplaces have become increasingly aware of the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion this year (2020) and that will continue to be true in the future as well.

In this recorded discussion, we talk with Kahlilah Guyah about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and get her takes on thinking of DEI in a systemic manner and through the perspective of a safety management system. Kahlilah is a member of the ASSP's Diversity & Inclusion Task Force.

Along the way, we discuss the using the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) Cycle and the Hierarchy of Controls in these efforts.

And--bonus--Kahlilah is also a member of the committee working on revising the ANSI/ASSP Z490.1 EHS Training standard along with Jeff Dalto of Vector Solutions, so we included a few words about that and Kahlilah's desire to bring these diversity, equity, and inclusion learnings into EHS training and the standard.

NOTE: Jeff's voice is soft/quiet here--I should have worn my ear buds, sorry!--but Kahlilah's is loud and clear and she's the one with the important stuff to say ūüôā¬†

Please note that Vector Solutions has a Professional Developing Training Library that includes online training courses on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

We've got a bunch of links for you below, too.
