Presented by: Regina McMichael, The Learning Factory
Imagine a perfect safety world, where the workers thank you for your help, training is easy, valuable and effective, and the everyone thinks you are awesome for all that you do. Why, you are a safety superhero! But that’s not how it always is. In fact, some days, it’s hard to remember why you do this job in the first place. In this program, your passion for safety will be revitalized and you’ll be reminded that it’s all about the little wins in safety that keep you engaged.

Regina McMichael started in safety when she suddenly found herself planning a funeral after her husband fell to his death while employed as a roofer. That began her journey to save just one life to make up for the one she lost. During this keynote, you will go from struggling from the day-to-day challenges of the compliance driven work mentality to remembering that working in safety is full of amazing opportunities to help people see the little wins that happen along the way!
