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!”

It’ll Hold…

So today I ask you to consider your life, your surroundings, your tools and household items, even your relationships.   What have you “patched up” that should really be replaced? What’s your ‘it’ll hold’?

International Women’s Day

This International Women’s Day, send a little love to the women who have been helping you get going when the going has gotten tough. I #choosetochallenge you to carve out a little time for your number one gal…. (hint: it’s you) – to do something nice for yourself – I can say with great certainty – YOU DESERVE IT!

Bell Let’s Talk Day

The mars and scars that live within us may be easier to disguise, however the effort to cover up is harmful in itself. Offering your time and attention to allow someone (who you know or don’t) to speak their truth out loud and share what is troubling them could make a lifetime of difference.

NEW program launch for NAOSH Week 2021

After 20 years of speaking about workplace safety and sharing my story with organizations all over the world, it’s been my experience that if you want to make your safety message matter, you’ve got to make it personal.

Return to Work …From Home

I will work from home with feelings of deep gratitude towards anyone and everyone out there on the front lines working to keep us safe. I will work on staying optimistic, while keeping those who have suffered great loss in my heart and prayers. I will work on practicing patience, knowing how fortunate I am to have a safe place to weather the storm. I will work on trusting the universe, and myself – knowing that this isn’t the first time my life feels like it’s been turned on its side, and it won’t be the last.

Candace has a powerful personal story and lessons for life,

worth listening to.

Commander Chris Hadfield


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.

Tom Parkinson

President and CEO, Hydro One

“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”.
