“Why We Violate The Rules was always one of my favorite pieces,” relates La Duke. “I think far too often people turn to enforcement and discipline before really understanding why people are non compliment. This topic is growing in popularity, in fact in April of this year I made a presentation based on this article at the Michigan Safety Conference in Lansing, MI. But I think what really got me was I was also asked for permission to reprint my article Deming’s 14 Points For Safety: Applying Total Quality Management To Reduce Workplace Risk in ASSE’s The Compass. Frankly, in the last several weeks, I’ve had so many requests to reprint or repost my articles and blog entries that it’s getting a little bit difficult to keep straight. It’s gratifying to have so many people saying so many nice things about my work. It’s not often that one gets feedback when most of your work is in print.” continues La Duke, who was approached by the ASSE technical division about reprinting his Facility Safety Management magazine article, Deming’s 14 Points For Safety: Applying Total Quality Management To Reduce Workplace Risk, in its technical newsletter.
ASSE will hold its national conference and expo June 12th –15th in Chicago, IL. La Duke spoke at last year’s conference in Baltimore. Both Fabricating & Metalworking and Facility Safety Management magazines have booths at the conference and La Duke is expected at the expo.
