On July 18, 2016, I am one of a couple of humorous motivational speakers for the Tennessee Health & Safety Congress.
The event, put on by the Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development, will be held at the Gaylord Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Over 800 safety leaders will attend, mosty from industrial and manufacturing plants throughout Tennessee.
Some safety professionals serve as a volunteer role on committees designed to help and support organizations to maintain safe work practices. The conference offers updates on key workplace safety and health issues and great networking opportunity and over 100 exhibitors at the trade show.
One of the key challenges for safety leaders today is to get continual management support for safe work initiatives. Building awareness around safety is protecting your organization, and people- thus, you are protecting instead of building, and safety can often fall behind as a priority.
Safety professionals can get caught in the middle when upper management are driven by results.
Safety advocates encourage others to take ownership of safety and comply with OSHA requirements while eliminating unsafe work practices. This conference provides delegates with the tools and resources to keep safety a priority.
As the opening funny motivational speaker, my job is to get this enthusiastic, hard working group of over 500 safety professionals laughing and decreasing stress as a group.
Part of the challenge with safety is people may fear bringing a safety issue to the forefront at work. Humor makes people more approachable and a message more acceptable.
