Maryrose Ramacci, IAAP Sustainability Committee Chair, said, “A sustainable business has the support and approval of its employees, stakeholders and the community. By reducing workplace injuries, we not only save money, we save lives, improve performance, create careers rather than just jobs, and build an industry that is a proud and prosperous place to be employed.”
