Why OSHA training is dangerous
Those who know me know I LOVE public speaking. Recently, I was doing an in-person OSHA/compliance training (which was awesome). I was speaking in a movie theatre and this particular movie theatre had a short stage about one foot off the ground. Toward the end of the presentation, I was talking about medical emergency preparedness.
I like to lean on things and decided to lean on a bar. Turns out, the bar was pretty low—a lot lower than I had anticipated. I ended up awkwardly squatting into a semi-sitting position to learn on the bar. But as I did, I slid back onto the platform and fell on my back. As I’m falling, I’m saying “It’s important to be prepared for unexpected emergencies.” Splat. The audience was confused and perplexed.
I couldn’t figure out how to get back up without looking ridiculous. I managed to sit up and continue my lecture while sitting. I finally figured out a plan to get up and quickly hit the next slide, which said, “We don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall—HA—to the level of our training.”
I walked off the stage and made a beeline for the door. People asked the hostess if I did it on purpose and she was like, “Yeah, he does that stuff all the time.”
The takeaway? Come see me speak live! Need a speaker for an upcoming event? Throw my name in the hat!
