WOULD YOU WATCH OUT FOR MY SAFETY?™
For years, safety leaders have been telling people to be their brother’s keeper without giving them effective ways of doing so. “Would You Watch Out For My Safety?™” teaches the “how-to” techniques for sharing safety concerns with others. After experiencing motivational safety speaker John Drebinger’s presentation, your employees will know the reason why they should watch out for each other and specifically how to share safety with someone else.
As a result of John’s “Would You Watch Out For My Safety?™” presentation…
Your employees will:
- Learn five reasons they will “want to” watch out for the safety of others;
- Discover three reasons people choose not to watch out for others;
- Know two special techniques for comfortably sharing safety with others;
- Understand how to respond when someone watches out for their safety;
- Point out safety hazards to others on and off the job;
- Know the “how-to” of being their brother’s keeper.
- Improve their own safety awareness;
- Never feel regret knowing they could have prevented an injury; and
- Take home a copy of John’s book, “Would You Watch Out For My Safety?™” (To reinforce the techniques John teaches in his presentation each audience member must receive a copy of his book available at a bulk discount price. This presentation is not available without the books.)
The book was written for each attendee to receive as a handout when entering the presentation room. It helps everyone put the principles they learned into action immediately after his presentation. During John’s presentation he uses several techniques to ensure audience members will want to read the book after the meeting. One way he does this is to share the first part of several stories and tells the audience they will have to read the book to find out the end of the story.
Another technique he uses to increase readership is the book is written in two parts and is a very quick read. The first part is the story of a person and their journey as they learn the five reasons they need to watch out for the safety of others. Along the way, they learn the obstacles that keep people from sharing safety and how to overcome them. The lead character then learns how to share safety and then finally how to respond when someone points safety out to them.
The second half of the book is a narrative of the presentation they will hear from John in person. Whether they choose to read the first half, the second half or the entire book, they will reinforce the lessons and techniques John teaches in person.
