Speaking Topics
  • Review Your Safety Culture

    Every company has a safety culture; the question is, “Do we have the safety culture we want?” Most organizations are blind to their own situation. It is difficult to be honest with ourselves, like a parent with an ugly baby, or the situation created in the story of the king who thought he had beautiful clothes because all those around him told him what he wanted to hear. When the king decided to have a parade to show off his new clothes, it was a kid who spoke out and said, “The king has No Clothes!” Suddenly the king became aware of his real situation and was embarrassed. Many companies have

    a similar situation because they do not have someone looking at their safety culture independently to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats using an acceptable framework. Take the guesswork out of your safety culture with an independent third-party review by Carl Potter.

  • Safety Past, Present, and Future

    In this presentation Carl will take you back to a time when getting the job done was more important than the safety of the workforce. He will walk you through the evolution that has occurred and even make some predictions about what will continue long after he is gone. Understanding where we were and where we are today is essential to improve our ability to continue the journey to where we are going. This program challenges audiences to understand the past, recognize that change is inevitable, and bring forward the best into a new decade for one purpose – so that everyone can go home every day without injury.

  • Keep Safety Simple

    When every person in the workplace who observes an unsafe condition or behavior that introduces a risk of injury, takes action to reduce the risk, that is the most effective and efficient safety management system. When creating a zero-injury workplace is the goal of every person, the organization will find the complex safety management system becoming more effective as well. The goal of the organization should be a network of committed individuals who want to create a workplace where it is difficult to get hurt. This means that every individual must be willing and able to learn, understand, and take action to mitigate. This is what it means to Keep Safety Simple.

  • Who Is Responsible for Safety?

    Executives? Supervisors? Safety department staff? Or you? Why is it important to know the answer to that question? After all, everybody, at every level, talks about working safely. In this presentation the audience learns how to take personal responsibility and why it is important to them. Carl’s unique presentation impacts audiences because he knows of what he speaks! He has over 17 years of field experience and is an experienced supervisor and business manager. His presentation is credible to audiences at all levels.
