People first, not safety first.

You know the hard costs of poor safety performance; broken equipment, increased insurance, and the hit to your reputation with the loss of business that follows.

Then there's the personal stress of having to deal with complacency, low morale, and wondering if your people will make the right choices.

You are not alone. Contrary to the conventional approach, you don't need a more focused effort on rules and enforcement. What you need is for more of your people to buy-in to safety.

You need new tools and strategies: a team-focused, positive approach that builds buy-in and rallies your people around safety.

Why Kevin? Why now?

When faced with issues like lack of employee buy-in to safety, or safety complacency, the conventional approach is to double-down on rules and process enforcement.

But, you don't fix recurring safety issues by piling on more safety.

You look for solutions that have worked in other companies, other industries and other departments outside of the safety department. You find new innovations and approaches. 

Kevin Burns doesn't come from the process side of safety. With over 30 years of experience in management consulting, marketing and communications, with a specialty in safety, you get solutions from other industries and other departments that have already worked for others.

You get a unique perspective that delivers the tools and strategies you'll use to help your people buy-in to safety. That will build a better safety culture.
