National Safety Initiative Welcomes UH Professor as Advisor

Dr. Christiane Spitzmueller

Dr. Christiane Spitzmueller, professor of psychology, served as the scientific advisor to the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America on their industry-wide safety culture assessment project.

A group of competitors joined together for the project after deciding collaboration was required to ensure employee protection. The project first began in 2010 as an industry-wide safety culture survey, which has resulted in significant worker safety improvements across companies. Further companies are getting involved, and the project will expand to Canada in the near future.
