A true story for your health and safety event
Is your health and safety program looking for a boost or a change of pace? Personal testimony and shared experience is the most powerful and effective way to change attitudes and perceptions about health and safety.
“Elisa, I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for your presentation on Monday. We’ve have had presenters/trainers in the past, but we’ve never had such positive feedback from everyone! One of our electricians said he didn’t really know what to expect but it really hit home for him. Thank you so much for sharing your story with our staff, it was certainly an eye opener for them. I hope that moving forward it will translate into safer work practices among our staff and summer students.”
50+ speakers ready to share their personal story
Members of the Speakers Bureau are volunteers from across Canada who have been personally affected by a life-altering workplace injury, fatality, or are living with an occupational disease. Their presentations are moving and unforgettable. Contact Threads of Life to find a speaker for your event: firstname.lastname@example.org.
