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.
Day of Mourning – 2020
For today, on this Day of Mourning, I will hold close to my heart those who have not returned home from work. I will pray for those who have been left waiting for the hug that will never happen.
For today, I will leave a candle burning in the window throughout the day and the night in honor of those who aren’t coming home, and to light the way for those who are.
Start Slow to Finish Strong
Safety doesn’t have to be complicated - simply slowing down in life is one of the best ways to stay happy, safe, and focused on what matters most - being present and healthy to spend time with the people you’re really working for - your family!!
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.
