Know who is at your Door: Contractor Safety Practices
October 29, 2013
Hosted by Pamela Hill
Cathy Sue Weaver was raped and beaten to death in her suburban Orlando, FL home on August 27, 2001. Six months prior to her murder, Sue had contracted with a store to have the air ducts in her home cleaned. Unbeknownst to her, one of the men was a twice-convicted sex offender on parole. He later returned to Sue’s home to rape and murder her. Sue’s murder is not an isolated case. Tragically, many consumers are sexually assaulted and murdered each year by employees whose jobs allow them access to their victims. The Sue Weaver C.A.U.S.E., Consumer Awareness of Unsafe Service Employment, has been founded in Sue’s memory to promote education and awareness to the dangers of not knowing who you hire. Join us as we discuss the issues and get important safety tips from the founder, Lucia Bone and Nicole Sundine of Realistic Safety Solutions.
Fear is Negotiable: Business Survival Skills 101
Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Business Channel
Fear is Negotiable: Business Survival Skills 101 will focus on risk mitigation and business preparedness steps in a practical and realistic way, for any sized organization in any industry. This show will drive risk and preparedness topics from discussion to action, and really educate about why businesses must prepare, and then provide the knowledge to get it done. The topics we cover are related to current “hot topics,” such as workplace violence, technology resilience, emergency communications, the psychology of disaster, or cyber-attacks. At other times when there are no “hot topics”, issues covered will range from threat assessment, to human resource issues related to emergency management, to best practices in risk mitigation.
By trade, Pamela Hill is a business professional with over twenty five years of experience in business continuity planning, disaster and emergency preparedness for a wide variety of industries.
After a successful run as a VoiceAmerica Host on Fear is Negotiable: Business Survival Skills 101, covering emergency preparedness in businesses, she decided to switch gears to talk about her true passion, dogs and their uniquely close relationship with humans.
Pam’s love affair with all things canine started when she was young, where she traveled throughout the west coast competing in dog shows with her client’s dogs, and also in obedience events with her own dogs. That was a long time ago, but the love of dogs was like a siren song, calling her back.
Now, Pam is focusing the show on education and creating awareness of all the ways dogs and human enrich each other’s lives.
