| Presented by: Ted Boyce, Center for Behavioral Safety, LLC
Have you heard or even said any of the following regarding your company’s training: Why are safety speakers always so boring? If all they’re going to do is read their slides, I could do that on my own! Here we go again, death by PowerPoint! Why do we have to hear the same stuff every time? Our trainers’ monotone voice puts me to sleep. If so, your employees are likely not well engaged in the training they’re receiving. And, with a decrease in engagement comes a decrease in learning, retention, and application. To put it differently, the change you want to see does not occur. In this session, you will learn what training traps to avoid and how to incorporate “best practices” in adult learning to truly engage your employees in training that should benefit them and your organization. Get the most from the time you spend learning, attend this session and experience first-hand what training should look and feel like.

| Presented by: Don Wilson, SafeStart
Worker safety is not limited to 40 hours per week and, since statistically people are much more likely to get hurt off the job, developing a 24/7 safety culture is not only the right thing to do, it’s a sound business decision.But fostering a safety culture requires appealing to workers’ personal agenda. Because they might not be naturally inclined to achieve the company’s safety goals or protect themselves, but they can definitely be motivated to protect their colleagues and their families.In this session, you will learn how to make safety personal and use it to drastically reduce injuries 24/7. Participants will:
Growing a safety culture requires commitment, dedication and the right attitude. Because you cannot enforce or mandate a safety culture—you cultivate and grow it by weaving safety into all the aspects of the workers’ lives and making it personal.
