Top 6 Motivational Safety Speakers

He punches the clock, back to work on the machine. He still has the ham sandwich taste in his mouth that he scarfed down in the break room. He’s tired, but (somewhat) ready to finish the rest of his shift. He puts his safety glasses on, and slumps back to his spot on the line. As his boss – you have a duty to keep him productive. A duty to keep your employees motivated. Happy. And to ensure safety.


To keep manufacturing employees safe there are, of course, the many protocols that must be in place. Being in charge of all OSHA safety regulations – from proper safety wear, the environment, storage is important, and then don’t forget about staying up to date on the latest technology and safety equipment for machinery, that’s what we’re about here at Metal Tech. Other than that though, you have to think about employee mindset as well. Like the correct safety signs, employee culture, and investing in training such as hiring a motivational safety speaker. Let’s discuss some of these safety factors and tips.

Leading Safety Factors a Manager Must Know and Implement

Installed Safeguards and Procedures

As a manufacturing manager, or owner there is certain equipment and procedures that can be put in place to ensure safety for facility, and employees. Things such as machine guards, press brakes, etc. Also here at Metal Tech, we sell The Laser Sentry system is a cutting-edge safety device, a Presence Sensing Device (PSD) featuring laser guides that ensure the safety of a brake press operator by detecting foreign objects. Also, providing and enforcing proper PPE safety gear such as, glasses, hats and other safety equipment. Keeping machines clean, and well maintained also prevents injury / machine malfunction.

Encouraging the Right Employee Behavior

This part of instilling safety in the workplace may be a bit trickier. So having the right game plan for keeping your manufacturing employees motivated, and safety oriented has to be well planned out with the proper strategy. Proper safety posters and signs in place is one tip to follow. Allowing proper breaks to keep workers from being fatigued, and also making sure they do not get overworked with too much overtime should be part of your safety strategy.

Also, employee meetings and investing in trainings can also be vital. What we will be discussing today is providing safety training or hiring motivational safety speakers to help keep the company culture and mindset SAFE. Your machines can have all of the proper safeguards, and well maintained equipment, but the operator’s behavior and decision making is also important on preventing costly and dangerous accidents.

What is a Motivational Safety Speaker?

The motivational safety speaker, when hired, will come into your workplace to give a presentation to the staff. They are there to spread awareness of safety and healthy practices within the company. They teach, inform, and motivate to keep your employees on the safety track, and hold them accountable.

Reasons To Invest in A Motivational Safety Speaker

When making any investment decision for your company, you’ve got to be aware of all of the advantages that it will do for your business. Here are just a handful:

  • Communication improvements are encouraged during these speeches in your machine shop. After the motivational safety speaker gives their speech, your staff will be more inclined to speak up about unsafe conditions, accidents, machinery issues, or needing help in certain unsafe situations.
  • Stress levels will improve. Remember ham sandwich breath man? From the beginning of this? He was tired, and overworked. When you bring in a motivational safety speaker to your workplace, it mixes things up. A fresh, different approach to the work day.
  • A motivational safety speaker presents the correct company culture. As a manager, or leader in your work space culture is also important. When the machine shop has a safe, productive culture the line will run smoother, and more efficient.
