AWO’s strategic plan, Charting the Future, calls on the association to lead and support its members in continuously improving safety, security and environmental stewardship. To live that vision, AWO strives to create and advance a culture of safety, and not merely a culture of compliance. As we begin a New Year full of opportunities and challenges – including Subchapter M implementation this summer – AWO is launching a monthly e-newsletter, Navigating to Zero, to provide its members with a new resource on their safety journey.
