CNB Safe

What We Do

Our Safety Speakers have all been affected by workplace injury or fatality, but they are not safety professionals. The stories we tell are not about Statistics or procedures, they are real life messages on how getting hurt or killed while doing our job has changed their lives.

Real Life Safety from Real Life People

Frequently asked questions(FAQ) people have about our Motivational Safety Speakers?

Can the Motivational Safety Speaker I book stay and mingle after the event with the attendees?
Many of our motivational safety speakers are happy to mingle with guests before or after an event, or, if appropriate, dine along with guests at the event. However, as our motivational safety speakers often have other engagements to manage, this will need to be discussed and arranged when you first make your booking.

What people have to say after hearing from a Motivational Safety Speaker

Michelle was very courageous to stand in front of a large group and speak about the loss of her son Alex. Her speech is very touching as she allows you into her life and speaks about how her family and Alex’s friends have had to come to terms with their loss. I think everyone in the room would have left with some insight into the consequences of losing someone and the ever lasting effect it has on everyone. The comments we received from people included, being more vigilant in the workplace, never assuming or taking anything for granted and the choices you make can have a huge impact.
Michelle reiterated the importance of following workplace procedures and having the right attitude towards safety to ensure you help create a safer place to work.
The inclusion of the statistics on workplace incidents in Australia was alarming and heart breaking. Michelle hit home that there was a life behind each of those statistics, someone’s father, brother, sister etc.
As Michelle said if her story can change one person’s way of thinking it makes her journey worthwhile. From the feedback we received from our employees her story definitely made an impact.
