“Lloyd is a successful health and safety professional with an exemplary record of performance record improving health, safety, and risk in diverse industries. He has an excellent ability to develop, implement and manage regulatory and loss prevention programs and processes for the protection of workers, assets and the environment. I enjoyed working with Lloyd while he was Corporate Director of Safety and Health with Martin Marietta Materials, Inc. Lloyd was able to elevate our company's focus on safety by implementing several new programs, including a proprietary exposure model that was key in predicting injuries and exposures, and an epidemiologic sampling model to assess and model exposure against the general population. The results were impressive, as indicated by a significant reduction in incidents, lost time injuries, and claims risk. Lloyd’s goal is "zero incidents," and he is tireless in this pursuit. Lloyd's leadership style is very effective by capturing both the hearts and minds of employees in striving towards an accident free workplace.” I wholeheartedly recommend Lloyd to any organization seeking to improve its business performance through effective management of safety and health.” September 24, 2010
