Dan Uses Exciting, Yet Dangerous Elements to Illustrate Safety Principles Your Employees Will Not Only Remember… But Apply
Drawing on his background as a professional performer, acrobat and juggler of dangerous implements, Dan Thurmon knows firsthand the importance of Safe Danger. While other safety presentations rely on the perspective of an academic, trainer or accident victim, Dan speaks to your employees from the perspective of a high performer with certain, very real risks.
What this means for your organization is highly entertaining, yet effective safety presentations that deliver hard value. Dan has helped numerous companies lower the incidence of accidents, create more focused employees and create a Safe Danger mindset.
Custom Presentations for your Company
Every presentation Dan delivers is personalized to specifically address the audience, client objectives, and desired outcomes. Often, based upon pre-conference conversations, Dan will create a “synthesized” program, pulling relevant themes and segments from his experience and body of work. The end result is always an experience that is guaranteed to be exactly on target.
Dan’s Most Popular Safety Presentations
SAFE Danger: Effectively Managing Uncertainty
It may seem counter-intuitive to learn about safety from someone who performs back flips from chairs, balances on moving objects, and juggles axes. But, upon closer examination, it makes absolute sense. All jobs and endeavors contain elements of risk. Certain responsibilities and workplace environments require heightened attention to elements of danger. Dan will demonstrate how, by adopting the right approach, you can effectively eliminate the worst-case scenarios and ensure a long and healthy career. This safety presentation is both informative and exciting, as Dan incorporates examples and illustrations from his lifelong, successful performance career.
Avoiding the DROPS: Preventing Accidents Before They Happen
Adopting a SAFE Danger mindset is not a one-time event. It is a daily discipline and ongoing challenge to stay ahead of risks and mindful of the ever-present elements that can cause harm to you and your teammates. In this presentation, Dan goes deeper into the most common precursors to accidents: the DROPS. This acronym stands for Distractions, Rushing, Overload, Panic, and Stress. You will learn valuable techniques to keep your cool, manage your pace, and stay focused on what matters most: your SAFETY.
Leading to SAFETY: Leadership Principles to Create a SAFE Danger Workplace
Safety is everyone’s responsibility, but leaders in high-risk environments have the daily challenge and requirement to communicate, monitor, and reinforce safety principles in real time. It is a dual role of encourager and enforcer. How do you make sure that the message doesn’t get “tuned out” and disregarded? Dan teaches how to stay tuned in to your employees and find creative ways to communicate safety principles, reinforce rules and protocols, and reward safety excellence where you see it.
