Safety expert Kevin Burns believes safety is a personal value that requires steps to motivate employees to embrace it.
Direct from the pages of The Perfect Safety Meeting, Running With Scissors, and his latest book, PeopleWork: The Human Touch in Workplace Safety, Kevin Burns offers safety personnel, supervisors, executives and frontline employees the strategies and tools they need to build positive, participatory safety programs together.
Kevin brings his people-centered method directly to you. Using storytelling and examples, he shows how companies across North America are picking up on a new safety message that takes up where ordinary safety programs leave off.
He shows organizations how people-centered principles can improve the way companies connect, communicate, and interact.
An inspiring speaker with an innovative safety message, Kevin believes in a positive message over the gruesome photos, sad stories and scare tactics of the past.
Whether it be at industry conferences, company stand-downs, or onsite workshops for supervisors, middle-managers, safety personnel and even senior management, Kevin Burns shows that safety connects through every part of an organization.
Leadership isn’t a job title, it’s an attitude. It takes a positive safety attitude to build an engaged culture of safety. Kevin shows how every employee can become a safety leader growing at all levels of a company, from frontline crews to c-suite executives.
Overwhelmingly, organizations say communications is their weakest area. As a former marketing and advertising agency owner, Kevin helps your people become better communicators. Safety professionals and supervisors learn the communication strategies to build engagement, get safety buy-in, and make it stick.

“Three months after the presentation, our Regional Managers are still using his ideas. In an hour, he made our jobs so much easier. Our retailers get it too. We’re having more fun and more success.”
“Kevin’s message of personal responsibility and empowerment in the pursuit of success is challenging, yet encouraging. Our team continues to draw from Kevin’s insights well after the retreat. It was a memorable presentation which I am sure others would find of benefit to their organizations.”
“For over a year, we’ve been trying to get our Rig Managers and Drillers to step up and accept their responsibility and be accountable in not only the running of their rigs, but also in the results on the number of incidents, staff turnover and how fast the job gets done. After just an hour with Kevin Burns, our guys now fully understand and accept what we’ve been trying to tell them for over a year.”
