Safety in the Workplace
In a presentation that was very difficult to condense to the time limit, Rotarian Mike Sudmalis spoke about Safety in our lives, and in particular how large corporations such as the Oil and Gas Industry deal with it. A particular episode, the Piper Alpha explosion in 1988 in the North Sea oilfields was used as an illustration.
