Podcast: 2022 Outlook on Supply Chain Risk Management
Veriforce has partnered with procurement expert, Jason Busch, to produce this podcast series, exploring the impacts of fragile supply chains in high-risk markets.
In this episode, Jason Busch, Founder and CEO of Spend Matters, sits down with Jeff Muto, Chief Marketing and Strategy Office at Veriforce, to discuss the evolving landscape of supply chain risk management. As an industry leader with over 20 years of experience, Jeff offers an informed perspective on the most pressing supply chain risks for 2022, why financial risks are just as important as safety risks, the impact of inflation on safety supplies, and more.
“One of the biggest challenges facing industrial markets today is ensuring the influx of new workers are trained and trained to operate safely. As it stands, the risk of someone being injured in the first year of a new job is nearly 4 times that of folks who have been working for an extended period of time, which poses a real threat to safe and efficient business operations.”
