CNBSAFE Safety Speakers

What if you could SHOW your employees the REAL effects of a serious workplace accident?

At CNBSAFE Safety Speakers we have an injured worker that can visit your workplace and share their safety presentation and experience with your site!

Our safety speakers are willing to help you on your safety journey by telling how an injury changed their lives and affected many people around them.

In January 2002, James Wood established C & B Safe Pty Ltd, a safety information and training consultancy across Australia and New Zealand.

CNBSAFE Safety Speakers Drawing from personal experience, C & B Safe develops and delivers thought provoking and informative safety presentations. These safety presentations provide an insight into the real effects of workplace injury and challenge audience members to consider their safety responsibilities.

Since its inception, C & B Safe has been responsible for changing personal attitudes towards safety. Today, C & B Safe continues to develop its services and is working towards having a larger voice in the community, stressing the importance of making safer choices to as wide an audience as possible.

James has since been joined by other workers that have been injured at work & are willing to share their story.

Our message is simple…

Safety is all about going home to our families and friends after work!

What we can offer you?

  • Our safety speakers are the first to admit they are not safety professionals, but that is part of the reason that so many people listen to what they are saying! They will basically tell their story and ask your workers to think about the consequences of the ‘Choices’ they make.
  • During some sessions employees will raise issues that they may hesitate to raise with a manager or supervisor, our safety speakers speakers can provide feedback to management on these issues.
  • We have developed a series of short informal workshops, each building on the importance of taking responsibility for your own safety and for the safety of your workmates.
  • Provide written feedback and safety messages to reinforce the discussions with all groups.

At CNBSAFE Safety Speakers we have noticed that the informal settings and independent forum allows workers to raise and discuss safety issues in a non-threatening manner. Issues that perhaps would not otherwise be raised. This gives you valuable feedback on how you can improve safety across your organisation.
