1. The Energized Approach for Creating a Safe, Healthy and Productive Workplace

Those in a position of responsibility are often faced with the monumental task of “introducing change” and “getting everyone on board”. Keeping employees actively engaged in the safety process can be a daunting, time-consuming and often thankless task. The Energized Approach provides the leadership team with effective strategies to “generate and capture” the energy needed to drive safe behaviors and insure that the company’s safety efforts generate the maximum return on investment. In this fun, high energy and information packed session Michael introduces the 10 essential energy sources and demonstrates how this time-tested approach reduces resistance and maximizes participation. The Energized Approach energizes participants and offers them a strategy that helps them create a work environment that is primed for action.
2. From Knowing to Doing: Effective Safety Training
Target Audience: Managers, Supervisors, leads and anyone with responsibility for the safety of employees.
For years, the delivery of information has been the method of choice for inviting safe employee behaviors. Unfortunately it has become clear that there is a huge difference between what employees know and what they do with what they know. While information certainly has value, its impact is influenced not only by the quantity of content delivered, but also by HOW the content is developed, delivered, supported and received! In this session Michael introduces REP; The Rational, Emotional and Physical approach to effective training. This fun, high energy session takes a humorous look at training and offers insights and strategies for training that not only influence what participants know, but also what they do with what they know.
