Safety With Purpose Podcast Platform

Welcome to a revolution in content that will lead to a larger revolution in practice.  Safety With Purpose supports Safety Professionals in every industry and acknowledges the invaluable contributions they make to every facet of our economy and lives.

A dangerous task that is completed without incident is no accident. Every hour of every day thousands upon thousands of delicate and complex operations are undertaken to ensure the safety of workers, facilities, patients, children, consumers, and public spaces - and while they are done with little fanfare, they require great attention and focus.  Safety With Purpose seeks to highlight the people behind the scenes, and support their work and careers.

Women In Safety Podcast with Tamara Parris

My background:

My name is Tamara Parris, and I'm passionate about creating healthy and safe homes and workplaces. From my start as a social worker in the 1990’s, helping new immigrants adjust to Canadian life and Toronto's homeless population, both risk and crisis management have been critical components of my job. My interest in health and safety emerged in Roatan, Honduras when I owned a nonprofit business installing satellite dishes on residential rooftops with my service crew.

After returning, I continued my education in Occupational Health and Safety at Humber University in Guelph. Since then, I've been applying my experience, knowledge and training to nurture and grow healthy and safe workplaces in the Construction, CCTV/Security, Food and Beverage, and Retail. I've had the privilege of helping teams grow by embracing a strong safety culture. Safety champions are key to sustaining a safety-first mindset, and I am consistently thankful to them for their efforts and deep commitment.

Choosing to protect the lives and health of other people is not a job -- it is a mission and commitment. Many of us have decided on a career that helps save other people's lives, one day at a time. I am proud to serve my community in this way.

Industrial Talk Podcast with Scott Mackenzie

My background:

I am Scott MacKenzie, husband, father, and passionate industry educator. From humble beginnings as a lathing contractor and certified journeyman lineman/splicer to an Undergraduate and Master’s Degree in Business Administration, I have applied every aspect of my education and training to lead and influence. I believe in serving and adding value wherever I am called. It’s been my privilege to lead a team onto the NASDAQ Stock Exchange while serving as President of a multi-national terminaling corporation.

While these are obvious resume-builders they do not define me as a business leader. My driving purpose is people. Accomplishments are rungs of a ladder, tasks undertaken to prove one’s abilities. Changing lives and building futures are the destination, the reason we climb.

Industry and its people are changing lives and the world.  I'm passionate about industrial marketing, sales, branding and business development and the tactical strategies/solutions to grow your business! At Industrial Talk, we believe in you and your vision, desiring nothing but your company’s success.
