Creating a Safety Culture – another great “free” class at Safety Fest TN!

Creating a Safety Culture

Monday, April 29, 2019 1:00 pm, Bill Prather, will present Creating a Safety Culture. All classes, sessions, and demonstrations at Safety Fest TN are free – registration is required to ensure enough space. More info below.

The Class

Join safety trainer and speaker, Bill Prather, as he shares information derived from the FDRSAFETY Attitude-Based Safety Culture Training Program. This interactive and motivational presentation will take participants on a journey of self-reflection and realization on why safety matters. It is centered on the principles of “Wanting to be Safe for family” versus “Having to be Safe for fear of being caught, injured or disciplined.” In a world where safety is normally addressed in a “how to” be safe manner, it’s time to increase awareness of why we should be safe.
