Candace is the leading light on enhancing safety cultures within organizations. She knows first-hand how a lack of safety in the workplace can change lives forever.

Candace works globally with safety-focused companies that rank the well-being of their employees above all else; companies that recognize that safety is top priority and commit to making it so – every day.

Candace believes that safety is an attitude, a state of mind, a way of life, and she shares her conviction that having the courage to care through standing up for others is a transformational concept – “If You See Something. Say Something!”

Because I Care.

One of the questions I am asked most often is how to communicate discomfort about a situation, or to call out plainly unsafe behaviour to a co-worker in a manner that will be well received.

Day of Mourning – 2019

Today is a day to remember.  A day to give pause in recognition of so many who lost their lives at work.  Those who died making a living. For me, it also signifies, and calls to mind, all of the details of the day that my life as I knew it changed.  I was one of the lucky ones who survived what countless others did not – I didn’t return home at the end of the work day, but I did eventually go home.  

PPE- You’re wearing it.

You may not know it, but you are already wearing the most effective and powerful PPE money can’t buy.

There are many specific details that made Candace’s presentation a very worthwhile investment …beyond the spectacular feedback by staff and managers, I’ve seen an immediate spike in our hazard reporting and that trend continued throughout the year. We registered a 104% increase in our ratio over the previous year. People really took the key message to heart.

Candace delivers a message with such a

positive passion

and enthusiasm that we could not help but be both affected and motivated. Candace was a definite factor in the success of the conference, and for that we are grateful.

“Candace has spoken to our staff and managers that deliver direct patient care. She didn’t just make all of us stop and think, she actually led us to change a number of work practices that permanently improved patient and staff safety. Words and phrases used to describe her presentations were, life-changing, extraordinary and Candace’s messages are impossible to ignore”.
