Current Speaking Topics

The Luck Factor – The Mistakes That (Sometimes) Get Us Hurt
No reasonable person tries to get hurt. Unfortunately, we all make mistakes that (sometimes) get us hurt. Although the majority of the time these mistakes don’t lead to an injury, they often result in poor quality work, equipment damage or a serious close call. Learn what causes us to make errors and what practical skills can be improved upon to prevent making them in the future.

Achieving Organizational Excellence Through Safety Improvements
Is safety really independent of all other management disciplines? Understand the relationships between safety improvements and other areas of the organization and learn how to make a better case for investments in safety.

The Missing Link in Risk Assessment
Most safety professionals agree that risk assessment tools are extremely helpful for prioritization of time, effort and safety resources. But the unpredictable nature of human error is often overlooked in the traditional two-dimensional matrix. Learn how important this “missing link” of human error is in overall risk.
