Transforming Safety Training into impactful learning experiences
Whether it was the Fatigue Management training that left you feeling more fatigued than a long-haul flight, or the safety induction where you learned just how much you dislike Clipart ... we’ve all heard our inner voice scream “there has to be another way!” There is. Join Tim to learn more about ‘the other way’.

In this 20 minute keynote we will:
• Explain how to transform safety training into learning experiences that engage people, drive change, and meet organisational objectives.
• Discuss different learning modalities such as online, peer-to-peer, and facilitator-led.
• Share examples of what organisations like ProBuild & Amazon are doing to help their people upskill in the flow of daily operations, engage in safety & understand high-risk activities. 

Timothy Evans, Chief Executive Officer, Everyday Massive
