  Duration : 90 Minutes

People often complain about boring safety trainers who drone you to sleep with their boring style. Launched in 2007, Mr. St. Laurent has grown his safety company,, Inc., by providing dynamic training that doesn’t bore you to death compelling his audience to put safety into practice in their professional and personal lives. Steve is known as the “Spanish OSHA Guy” and conducts all his training in Spanish as well as English thanks to having lived and worked 2 years in Mexico! 

You can transform your safety culture with help from Steve’s unique 4-pronged approach: (1) Identifying where your company is on the Time/Money Continuum of basic safety awareness, compliance and implementation of best practices; (2) Sharing trends in your industry for a strong safety culture; (3) Exploring with your company leaders where you desire to be in 6 - 24 months; and (4) Unifying your company resources with, Inc. and other outside consultants to map out a strategy to win not just with Safety & Health, but also with Quality and Production!  

Steve’s training and consulting experience is born from his work directly with construction and manufacturing outfits in over 30 states and also in Mexico. Mr. St. Laurent always brings his “high energy” style to the customized training he provides including OSHA 10 and 30-hr, First Aid/CPR/AED, bloodborne pathogens, lockout-tagout, confined space, and other compliance topics, along with his specialty of supervisor training on topics such as  “effective communications” and “How to Deliver Training & Toolbox Safety Talks that Don’t Bore you to Death!”   

Mr. St. Laurent maintains a free safety blog focusing on how to be a better trainer as well as providing content for toolbox safety talks. He also provides his free, Toolbox Talk of-the-Month complete with a quiz and the sign-in sheet with a summary of the talk, all in English and Spanish! Steve is grateful to live in North Central Massachusetts with his beautiful bride of over a decade and their three children. 

Do your Toolbox Safety Talks engage your audience, provoke great discussion all while compelling people to take action on safety and health in their personal and professional lives? The soft-skills or people skills of presenting, public speaking and a powerful delivery have fallen by the wayside. This Webinar resurrects these skills in a fun and easy-to-apply manner

If you find it difficult to lead a meaningful safety meeting, then this talk is for you! Too often I’ve heard people tell me that they’ve never gotten any guidance on how to prepare, find good content, and take a list of steps, a statistic or procedure and turn it into an engaging talk. And sadly, in some cases, the Toolbox Talk or Safety Huddle devolves to just passing around a piece of paper and saying, “This is the talk for the week. Sign it.”  AHHHHHHHHHH. This can’t be! And it won’t be any more after attending this relevant webinar that will give you practical tips for immediate use!
