Group co-founder, Pieter-Jan Blots, Process Safety Manager at Kemira (a Findland-based global chemicals company) and a Technical Committee Member at The Amsterdam Process Safety Seminar Series, explains the decision to feature La Duke’s blogs, “We started about half a year ago this EHSQ Elite blog, and I selected Phil La Duke as one of the blog writers, as he does have a view on safety and he does make people rethink safety issues. He ensures that we don't become self-satisfied safety professionals, knowing everything better, but makes us aware of our weaknesses.”
La Duke is equally excited at being featured, “I couldn’t be more pleased with having my blogs promoted in this way. It’s truly humbling to be one of only four bloggers for the group. Also, many of my views are controversial and I find that there is a much greater receptiveness to my views outside the U.S.”
