National Safety Council – Nebraska Chapter
Eric and Susan hosted the presentation. We saluted all who have served the United States with silence during our national anthem, and we gave moments of silence to those who have fallen during workplace accidents. Companies becoming stronger with more safety protocols during the pandemic were recognized. NSC encourages everyone to visit NEDrivingConcern.org to reduce traffic fatalities. And, please contact NSC for Mental Health First Aid Training along with other classes; There’s an action plan for recognizing behavioral instability, substance abuse and beginning an empathy dialog to help those suffering from the added stress of the compounding issues these last 18 months. Contact Susan Booth of NSC with any questions.
Step Up Your Safety, A Message by Candace Carnahan
Candace is a professional speaker sharing her safety messages: Have the Courage to Care, See Something Say Something, Workplace Safety is Everyone’s Business, Pause-Wait-Stop if you’re Tired, Off or Unsure and Any Small Change Can Possibly Change Someone’s Life or Save Someone’s Life! Candace’s powerful story about human nature, caring, thinking, habits, promoting a safety culture, not being reserved in speaking up, calling out or asking questions is very moving, motivating, real, and makes a lot of safety sense, common sense and life sense. Learn more about Candance and her campaign here or via NSB here. Candance explains how a 4 cm conveyor gap was enough to grab hold of her, how long 3 seconds really felt before the STOP button was hit, how machines ‘don’t care’, how “EVERYONE” becomes deeply affected by an accident and how common complacency habits can mix with invincible immortality. Candace quoted double amputee Harold Russell for saying, “It is not what you have lost but what you have left that counts” as a key motivator in her finding happiness. Her story will touch your heart, resonate with you and empower you to become a practitioner of gratitude and safety.
