"It was an absolutely great experience taking Chuck and Terry's workshop in Houston, September 18-20. The broad and combined years of experience in the EHS world puts the Proact team on a higher plane than most. Insights into proactive measures for our EHS management systems, learned in the course, are already being applied at our company with real success. The workshop truly assisted my team in putting structure/framework around our BBS program, and it's already producing great results for Halyard."
Bill Swanger, Global EH&S Leader, Halyard
"I have taken the Internal Consultant Certification. We are currently evaluating our terminals. This is a great concept! Its the next step to take after you have your traditional safety established. What I like about the program is the engagement by employees."
Tom Boehler, Director of Safety and Compliance, Erb Group of Companies
"We had a 100% reduction over the last 4 years!!"

"We just finished our Lean BBS Internal Consultant Workshop with ProAct Safety, led by Shawn Galloway. The feedback from the team has been outstanding. Shawn's ability to connect with a vastly diverse group of associates, managers and executives has been invaluable. His knowledge, ability, and most of all his flexibility in presenting the material has set us up for success. He was able to coach each of us on how to move from theory to practice using specific and well thought out examples and exercises. He engaged and motivated the entire team, the level of confidence soared after the session. We are all excited to get our employees engaged in the observation process and we are confident that it will have a huge impact on our safety performance and culture. Thanks Shawn!"
Mark Torch, Director of Environmental, Health and Safety, The McGraw Hill Companies
"Shawn and his company have been extremely helpful in the development of the Rexam safety process. As an internal consultant for Rexam, trained by ProAct, I have frequently sought help from Shawn in dealing with a variety of issues. His breadth of knowledge and experience has provided me with creative solutions to my problems."
Randy Klug, Director of Health & Safety, Rexam Beverage Can
"I first had the pleasure of meeting Shawn at his Lean Behavior-Based Safety workshop. I was amazed not only at his mastery of lean philosophy and behavioral science, but also his ability to synthesize the two and communicate the resulting approach to safety in a thoroughly practical manner. Since then, I have continued to learn a great deal from Shawn both directly in conversation and indirectly through his many journal articles blog postings, and webinars. He is always available, always helpful, and always practical. I will continue to look to Shawn for wise counsel and confidently commend him to you for the same."
Todd Hickerson, Director - Health and Safety, Mission Foods
"Shawn and ProAct Safety implemented Lean BBS at one of our manufacturing facilities as a pilot implementation and we followed up by having them train our EHS staff to be internal consultants and implement ProAct's program corporate wide. Shawn and the ProAct team do an excellent job of implementing BBS. They've remained our partners for 6 to 7 years and are always available when we need assistance or an opinion. Shawn is extremely knowledgeable and an excellent speaker/presenter. Any chance I get to hear Shawn speak always leaves me inspired and with renewed energy for safety and behavior based safety."
