“You Make a Difference!”

Many of us go through the motions of our job day in and day out without really thinking about how our work affects other people’s lives. Some of us install, inspect, and test facilities’ safety and fire protection equipment. Others teach workers safe job practices. Some inspect and survey jobsites, write reports, and generate recommendations to improve working conditions. Some of you may sell safety equipment, but how many of you see the results of your efforts? This presentation will help you understand that your work makes a difference, even if it doesn’t always feel that way.

Examples include:

  • The Fire Sprinkler System that Shut Down a Construction Job but Saved a Business
  • The Sprinkler System that Got a Huge Refund from the Water Utility
  • Somebody’s Going to Get Hurt! – But a Worker Died Instead
  • The Museum that Almost Shut Down because of a Tree Branch
  • The Vehicle Crash that Changed My Life but Saved Many Other Lives
  • What’s Your Story?
