“The Council is proud to recognize these world-class leaders like Jim who exemplify the ideals of the Journey,” said Janet Froetscher, National Safety Council president and CEO. “Their inspiring stories of safety excellence will set an example for others to follow as they seek to improve their own safety programs.”
