Sticky Safety -
With STICKY SAFETY, participants identify Safety Traps and embrace Safety Solutions that prevent accidents and boost morale and retention. Tim presents thought-provoking questions and guides your people toward meaningful, actionable answers:
What’s your “Why Factor?”
In this “head-and-heart” section, participants explore why safety matters to them personally, and reflect on how a single moment of carelessness could negatively reshape many lives.
What “sticks” with you?
Tim translates sticky training gems like, “Don’t die of shame,” “I never unbuckled a dead body,” and, “Getting hurt isn’t stupid—not telling anyone is,” into practical insights, and guides participants to craft and share their own sticky sayings.
Can numbers be fun?
Tim’s compelling storytelling involving real people, real lives—and, yes, real numbers—lends context and contrast that spring statistics to meaningful life.
Safety’s no joke...but can it be?
Of course, not all humor is appropriate but, used effectively, it becomes a powerful tool in one’s own stress plan. Tim guides participants to inject humor into safety meetings certain to bolster employee retention and morale.
Are people taking “time to live?”
Safety violations often occur when people are in a hurry. Tim’s “flip of a coin” technique teaches participants to pause and consider consequences before acting, and shows how taking seconds to mentally flip a coin may give them “time to live.”
Can you really do your job in your sleep?
Confidence in one’s skills may ease stress, but thinking, “I can do this in my sleep,” proves a very dangerous mindset. Participants discover how to stay “in the “now” no matter how many times they’ve accomplished a task.
Is stress dangerous?
Dig deep into a safety violation and you’ll likely find stressed-out, tired people. Tim’s resilience training techniques help participants define their stress boundaries and reframe how stress impacts their work, so a common negative becomes a safety-enhancing positive.
