Challenges we face… • Reaching people: There are many people and companies who still don’t know about IAPA and in some cases are not aware that they have a health and safety responsibility • Creating the market by helping leadership clearly understand the business case for prevention. As a social issue, health and safety is in its infancy.

It demands: • LEADERSHIP • INTEGRITY • RESPECT • RELATIONSHIPS • IT’S ABOUT RESPONSIBLE CITIZENSHIP
