    “Panel debates and roundtable discussions at the Verdantix summit validated what leading companies are
    telling ERM about how new technologies can significantly enhance operational performance as they reframe
    EHS as a value creator rather than just a necessary cost.”

    Associate Director, Safety and Mission Assurance

    Human spaceflight is inherently risky, and certainly not “safe”.
    The better standard that is used by NASA and other high risk organizations is to ask the question,
    “Is it Safe Enough”.
