“The program allowed viewing manufacturing industry from a wide angle. This is especially important in our discipline (safety), where we must see things from various perspectives and be able to communicate the importance of safety while respecting production. It was a great opportunity to learn about different aspects of industry relevant to manufacturing sector.”
