Presentation Description & Topics
NEW WORLD, SAME OLD SAFETY
- The worker is the solution, not the problem
- The core component for this training focuses on clarifying and reiterating the fact that workers are not creating
safety problems within the system.
- The worker is typically the solution to the problem and solutions can be found using learning team environments and allowing open levels of transparent communication.
- This is the initial fundamental that must be understood before progressing through the following phases that are expected or true organizational transformation.
DUALITY OF SAFETY
- Discussion about the contrast of two concepts revolving around Safety and Operations
- This discussion outlines the conflict that exists between operational and safety strategies.
- The core principles of
operational strategies are created around revenue producing opportunities which often time lie in contradictory
juxtapositions with core safety principles.
- Focusing the conversation on position anomalies that align in both spheres highlights the weaknesses and conflicting topics that face workers in these environments.
HUMAN AND ORGANIZATIONAL PERFORMANCE
- This dialogue examines the definition, core parameters, and framework of Human Organizational Performance.
- What is HOP and what positive change can it bring to an organization.
- This outline includes how a collective
mindset shift can be implemented to create a complete organizational transformation and build a resilient
system that can handle failures gracefully.
- The biological definition for culture is “the growing of microorganisms, tissue cells, or other living matter in a
specially prepared nutrient medium where they are able to proliferate readily.”
- We don’t want safety to be a
microorganism that works in a perfectly prepared environment that is measurable or quantifiable! So how do
we make sure we are making an impact and truly changing the environments we are working in so that safety
can proliferate outside of a prepared environment?
- We work on shifting the mindset by initially focusing on
shifting the understanding of what safety is and then work on adjusting the narrative of the industry or

“Bringing Dr. Jay Allen, or Jay, to our company for a speaking engagement was one of the best things that happened to our company culture. We have worked with other speakers and consultants in the past, but none of them were able to create changes, and most importantly, connect with all levels of workers, from executives to warehouse employees, the way Jay did. During Dr. Allen’s speech, it was amazing to see people light up, become engaged, and feel empowered with a sense of direction, walking away from the event with a knowing that we, as a team, are ready and capable to improve the processes, operations, and safety. Jay brought a lot of elements into his speech, giving the audience something to laugh about, something to think about, and something to be shaken up about. He is extremely approachable on and off stage, direct, and incredibly efficient. I would highly recommend Dr. Jay Allen for any events to motivate, inspire or to ignite change in an organization.” – A.V., COMPANY CONTROLLER, FATH INC
