Corrie Pitzer, a regular speaker at the National Safety Congress & Expo, kicked off Tuesday’s agenda with a “preview” of the opportunities and risks confronting safety and health professionals in a post-Covid world.
Right now, with all the Covid protections and protocols, Pitzer said there exists a certain paralysis by protection. We feel comfortable and confident. Of course, the danger is that this can lead to complacency and risk-taking. But Covid has also produced what he called, “risk paralysis.” “We are paralyzed by fear,” he said.
