Opening Keynote | Say Yes to Safety

Are you looking for fresh, fun, and innovative ideas on how to get the workforce to say “yes” to safety? Of course, who isn’t! Safety Culture 2017 kicks off with Say Yes to Safety, which will illustrate the power of improv for helping to prevent injury, promote co-operation, and inspire positive working environments. Donovan Workun, three-time world improvising champion, and Graham Neil, internationally award-winning television reporter, will teach you how to use improv skills to create and maintain a safe work environment and build positive mutual relationships that work—a key element in modern approaches towards workplace safety. This hands-on, exercise-based session will teach you 3 cornerstones of staying safe—to look, listen, and react. Plus, you’ll learn how to:

  • Think on your feet
  • Become more aware of your surroundings
  • Better concentrate on tasks—including how to keep repetitive jobs interesting
  • Support each other and work cooperatively so everyone can be truly safe
  • Build your organization’s “Culture of Yes!” from the ground up
