Getting employees and supervisors to buy-in to safety takes a unique approach. The biggest challenge for any safety department is to constantly find new ways to keep employees engaged in safety that don't involve gruesome photos and injury stories.
Safety, to employees, is boring and restrictive. They resist buying-in to a program of checks, forms, paperwork and fear-based tactics.
Is it any surprise that employees are resistant when they see safety presented as nothing more than that?
Kevin Burns can change that.
When people buy-in to safety and improve their personal leadership in safety, the need for rules enforcement disappears.
When employees develop their own personal leadership skills, they make better choices. Kevin Burns helps your people do that and to come to safety willingly. He helps people make better choices and choose safety as one of their personal values.
Kevin makes safety fun, engaging, easily understood and positive, all while aligning with and supporting your safety program.
