Keys to Energizing Safety

What do people in your company think about Safety? As boring, unexciting or even exhausting? Do they woodenly go through the Safety motions, rather than being vibrantly interested and stimulated? Do they basically see Safety is an unfortunate requirement, a pain in the posterior that’s mostly an obstacle to accomplishing their “real” work? Energy is essential for fueling highest-level Safety performance and culture throughout an organization. The right kind and sustained level of energy can propel momentum and actions to previously unforeseen heights (assuming – but going beyond - a base of policies and procedures, supportive structures, and consistent attention.) This webinar, based on over 3 decades working with larger, high-performance global companies, provides both practical strategies and methods for actually raising and sustaining Safety energy, enthusiasm, interest and engagement.

ASSE virtual events are designed to be viewed on most standard laptops and desktops. Many of our videos and on-demand products may also be viewed on tablets and mobile devices.

If you are viewing a live webcast, click here to test your system.

If you are signing up for a video or on-demand presentation, we suggest that you truly test your system by first registering for one of ASSE's free videos. A list of videos that are free to members can be found here.

If content isn't playing, you can try a couple of things. First, if you're viewing this at work, please check with your IT staff. Oftentimes, IT departments will "throttle" videos so that they play slowly or won't play at all. Usually, when they see that the video is being used for professional development, they can ease up on the security settings and let the video play.

Secondly, if you have the ability to login and view the videos on a different browser (like Chrome, Safari or Firefox) give that a try. We tend to see a lot of people who have problems when using Internet Explorer.

Other Recommendations

  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Make sure that your internet browser is Active X enabled.
  • We recommend a wired connection. While wi-fi may work just fine, a wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
