Safety Consultants

  • Laurette Wright, RN, MPH, COHN-S, CSPHP
    Safety Management Consultant



    “When I began my career as a nurse thirty-five years ago, I can vividly recall colleagues implicitly and at times, explicitly deliver the message that sustaining any type of on-the-job muscular type injury was attributed to being a nurse – it came with the job. It was that experience so many years ago that has fueled my desire and passion to ensure all employees, regardless of their industry, are provided a safe work environment.  It is in working with my clients that I seek to establish a partnership that will effect a positive change relative to a culture of safety.”

    Laurette began her career in the field of Occupational Health and Safety in 1984. During this time she has worked in manufacturing, insurance, and a major medical device company dedicating her career to creating safe and healthful work environments for all her associated organizations.

    As a globally recognized professional speaker in the field of Safe Patient Handling and Mobility, she has conducted many customer presentations/educational offerings regarding various safety and health topics specific to general industry and healthcare. Laurette has also authored and co-authored numerous professional publications in journals and books and was a contributing author in The Illustrated Guide to Safe Patient Handling and Movement.
