Inspiring Safer Workplaces

Brad Hurtig

Presentation Overview: (from Brad)

Most everyone agrees that safety is important. After working a full day, everyone wants to go home safe. Even though there might be times where some of us feel safety can be annoying and frustrating. Having to do things in specific ways while safe procedures add extra steps and processes to a project. But I can tell you from first-hand experience that safety doesn’t hurt, accidents do.
  1. I’ll be sharing the events of my accident: How/why it happened
  2. The things I’ve learned from my accident: Safety equipment can fail you, Take Time To Think, Communicate
  3. Finding A Way: Life can knock us down. How will you respond?
Through personal stories, I will illustrate that we must Adapt and Persevere.
