But Why Martin?
What it is it about him that makes safety memorable?
Stories – Real World Stories!

What Works?

Messages that are memorable and stories that stick!
Martin makes safety easier to swallow; his stories have a lot of humor and reality. People like stories and they are best told from someone who was there in the heat of the moment. Martin has first hand experience dealing with illnesses, injuries and fatalities.

In fact, you might think some of these stories are so bizarre that he made them up. Unfortunately these stories are all true. People see themselves in the stories. We all know how close we come to injury

“I’ve had people come up to me a year later and tell me they remembered one of my stories and the point I made with it. I’m proud of that because I know when this happens, they are thinking about safety.” – Martin Lesperance
