Safety, Health and Wellness Expert

Few people have as much and as varied experience as a leader in Safety and Disability Management. As a consultant to high risk and high claims volume employers and industries, Paul and Jackson managed innovative and powerful interventions. Paul and Jackson oversaw groups of more than 200 professional disability management staff, including doctors, nurses and psychologists. Paul and Jackson has the experience and mastery needed to deliver an organization-changing inspirational speeches to your audience today.

You probably have a solid, well-established written safety program. Your people know what they’re supposed to do. But are they doing it? Breakdowns in safety often occur because of the persistent, yet sometimes hidden, emphasis on productivity over safety, and employee indifference to safe job procedures. These persistent problems can be resolved! It requires simple, consistent actions as part of a long-term commitment to positive safety cultures.

In this inspirational introduction to the science of positive psychology, learn about the research results that prove happiness leads to greater safety success. Come away with applicable skills that will fuel your personal engagement and create positive contagion amongst the people you influence.

The field of positive psychology research has massively expanded our understanding of human potential. We now know that happiness is key to successful outcomes in all aspects of life. And anyone can increase their level of happiness by implementing skills uncovered by scientific research. Organizations that commit to positive culture change can reap the proven benefit of reduced injury rates and less disability, both of which contribute to a better bottom line.

If your company knows “what to do”, but too often finds staff and management fail to do it, you will come away with new insights about how to powerfully engage employees and create impactful, effective corporate culture.

Safety really can be “Job One”!

Many senior leaders, front-line supervisors, safety officers and union representatives come to their roles because they are experts in their subject matter, but safety leadership requires much more than job-specific skills. This talk de-emphasizes the job skills leaders individually know and instead asks participants who they are.

Trust is an essential component to effective organization cultures. There is no single mechanism to create trust other than to behave with integrity. Words, slogans, images and procedures can never take the place of action. Pairing his information with clips from Hollywood films, Paul and Jackson shows how people naturally adjust their actions and cooperate with others when they are in cultures of high integrity.

In this presentation, men and women who influence the behaviour of staff will learn a mindset that shifts them from overseers of business processes to genuine role models—seeing the big picture, articulating the direction, and embracing their team in a collaborative and committed mission. Transformative organizational change occurs when everyone walks the talk, operating with emotional intelligence and profound personal integrity.

Our inspirational speech on integrity creates a lump in the throat as people question how they show up at work. People are confronted with the powerful question— “Am I bringing my best self?”

Can you think of examples of companies with excellent programs on paper and persistently disastrous safety outcomes? This talk powerfully changes perspective on what a good program looks like. Having a check mark of approval from your local workers’ compensation body looks good, but it doesn’t reflect real safety culture.

Drawing on his personal experience helping one company turn its safety record around, Paul and Jackson shows how leaders can translate their written program into truly safe workplaces. This real world example powerfully moves safety culture from scientific theory to an attainable goal for any company and any industry.

Genuine cultural transformation is available. See the potential in your own workplace. Imagine a future in which each staff member volunteers their heart and mind, and not just the labour of their bodies.

Culture is found in the conversation—the basic human relationships that form the context in which work is done. This talk shows exactly how companies can move from good in theory to good in practice. Based on real life work, see how culture can be practically changed. Learn, step by step, a complete approach to changing the human-to-human dynamic in a workplace setting.

Funny, dramatic and, at the same time, do-able! Walk away with a whole new concept of what constitutes a culture of safety!

The best safety systems have little application if workers are distracted and unfocused as they do their work. And we are all distracted these days. We are busier than ever, constantly considering our to-do lists, our relationships, our future worries and our past challenges. Combine this constant mental chatter with the perils of routine, repetitive work tasks and you have a recipe for disaster.

The secret weapon against distractions from safety is mindfulness. Mindfulness is as important for your brain as exercise and nutrition are for your body. To be mindful is to be fully present with what is actually happening in the moment. Everyone can learn shortcuts to being focused, on task and holding distracting thoughts and emotions at a distance.

Based on real mindfulness programs taught to the hardest, toughest industrial workers—logging crews on the wild west coast of British Columbia—this talk explains how mindfulness can be made a part of every safety program.

As one of our’s many inspirational speeches, this presentation explains what mindfulness is, why it’s important for everyone and how to implement it. It will leave your team motivated to make change.
