Transforming the Safety Industry


Status Go Podcast: Episode 1

“Of all of the leaders out there in all of our industries a full 85% don’t get beyond the self authoring stage.” – Ron West

Episode 71: Transforming the Safety Industry

This week Status Go welcomes Robin Fleming, CEO and Co-Founder of Anvl, a safety company helping organizations identify risk and reshape culture.  Growing up in a  blue-collar town, one of Robin’s first professional experiences entailed teaching men who had lost fingers to workplace accidents how to type.  Never at that point did she think one day she’d be transforming safety processes for front line workers by creating more digitized processes.  Robin sits down with Jeff Ton to discuss everything from the serendipitous connection between her internship  and her CEO opportunity years later, to the necessity of the pivot to digital for the safety industry, to her experience often being the only women in the room.
