Develop an Unstoppable Mindset: Success Strategies for Safety Teams & Supervisors
With the alarming predominance of workplace accidents caused by human error, the importance for engaging teams and individuals with safety procedures in a way that is meaningful to them and can promote significant change is crucial. Most human factors involved in accidents occur in the arena of memory, awareness and attention, judgement and reasoning, attitude, and risk perception – all areas dealing with the cognitive mindset and the need for even the most highly-trained individuals to remain alert and focused during potentially hazardous work situations.
Nothing delivers the importance of safety better than a personal story. Neuroscience studies confirm storytelling illuminates parts of the brain that are only active when a listener actually experiences something – triggering their imagination, engaging them with a deep emotional response and sealing it into memory. With these areas of the brain activated and connected by a physical and emotional response, memory retention has been shown to be up to 7 times more effective than training through facts and figures.
Motivational Safety Speaker Scott Burrows details his unforgettable, life-changing story of turning a paralyzing setback caused by a poor split-second decision into a powerful comeback that will inspire your team to develop a true safety MINDSET.

Told while using own physical paralysis as a visual metaphor and blending eloquent storytelling with humor and crowd interaction, Scott leaves audiences captivated, inspired and ready to take action. His VISION, MINDSET AND GRIT SAFETY PRESENTATION will Impact your team by encouraging better day-to-day safety decisions in the workplace and changing the way your employees view and approach their jobs. Listeners will walk away embracing workplace safety protocols as opposed to resisting or ignoring them.
