    9. Provide all necessary resources that will result in an organizational culture that fosters safe practices, encourages effective safety reporting and communication, and actively manages health, safety, and quality.
    10. Actively encourage communication and exchange of ideas and information with all interested parties on matters applicable to our programs.
