Tim does it again! He holds the prestigious title of "most listened to episode" with his first appearance on Larry Wilson Live , and his second time on the show does not disappoint!
Our 30th episode features the one, the only, Tim Page-Bottorff!
An older and somewhat bitter gentleman stood up and proclaimed, “There’s nothing funny about people getting seriously hurt!” and then he wagged a menacing finger at the group…
True, but you don’t learn much when you’re sound asleep either. So how do you inject humor into your safety training so it’s entertaining, worth listening to, and you don’t cross the line or somehow appear disrespectful to important rules, procedures, checklists, permits and PPE standards? It can be a difficult balancing act. You need to be serious but you will definitely turn people off with too much “doom and gloom,” not to mention that scare tactics don’t really work or work for very long.
Tim Page-Bottorff is an expert at bringing humor into his safety presentations, and he’s been doing this for over 20 years. His keynote presentation: “Humor in Safety” has been done at over 100 safety conferences in North America, Africa, the Middle East and Europe, which is interesting considering that Tim isn’t really very funny (just kidding).
