David's 25 years in the safety and risk control industry have provided him with broad experience and deep knowledge about effective safety programs for a diverse array of businesses and environments, including theme parks, hotels, restaurants, manufacturing, transportation and retail operations.
His blog is an important resource not only for fellow safety and risk control professionals, but also for businesses and design teams that seek to enhance safety for employees and customers.
Putting this topic in front of his colleagues is extremely helpful. In particular, the brief survey (on which Rob Reiter and I collaborated with David) will provide much-needed insight into the awareness and perspectives of his readers regarding vehicle-into-building crashes.
I especially liked what he wrote about 'control measures': "Building placement, parking space design, bollards, structural rails, and crash-worthy architectural features are all potential avenues of control for storefront crash prevention."
