Current Speaking Topics

Humor in Safety…From Blah Blah Blah to Ha Ha Ah-ha
Injecting humor into safety meetings can take them from being dreaded to highly anticipated! Attendees will be introduced to simple techniques that can make meetings not only fun but motivating and informative.

Building the Foundation to Safety Excellence
Building a strong foundation for personal safety is crucial to achieving your ultimate goal of zero injuries and fatalities. Without each person managing their own individual risk, the sustainability of a safety program will eventually crumble and fail. Tim will discuss how mapping out each day can help to manage individual risk and the sustainability of a safety program.

Leapfrogging from Compliance to Culture
There are several stages companies eventually progress through on their journey to zero injuries. With limited time, budget and an urgency to mitigate risk, safety professionals need to spot the most efficient path by pursuing the big improvement opportunities that will move them well beyond OSHA compliance to a self-compliant culture of safety.
