Who is Candace Carnahan?


Candace is a Safety Motivational Speaker, Empowerment Advocate and Culture Change Agent who believes the best way for companies to maintain or improve their safety culture is through sharing stories. She starts the process by sharing her own story of how she lost her leg while on a job site and what it taught her about why injuries still happen today.

Candace has worked with multinational corporations across a number of industries including manufacturing, healthcare, oil and gas, transportation, and has trained CEOs, government departments, and employees to think about safety differently. From keynotes to customized sessions in the workplace, Candace inspires teams to find their voice, and to look at everyday decisions as directly related to the potential impact on workers and their families.

Relating her stories and experiences to the challenges, obstacles and goals of the organizations she works with, Candace moves her audience to put caring into action. Her mantra “See Something. Say Something™” concludes every time she speaks and leaves all in attendance motivated and poised for change. Igniting the Courage To Care. To Act. To Be Safe.

What is Step Up Your Safety?


After 20 years of speaking about safety to companies all over the world, Candace wanted to design a program that a company of any size or location could deliver to their employees to help make their safety message more meaningful and memorable. Step Up Your Safety includes six short modules (video and a workbook) designed to help companies revitalize their safety program with employees by getting to the heart of why safety really matters to each and every one of us.

Delivered individually or through a group-settling, Step Up Your Safety is unlike other safety programs in that it’s designed to help employees get personal and uncover their own ‘why’ safety truly matters to them. Through short videos and workbooks, companies use Step Up Your Safety to revitalize and get perspective on the other mandatory training the company provides.

What course or program is better for my team?


The best way to identify the program for your team is to get in touch with us. Send us an email at info@candacecarnahan.com. Through a quick discovery session we can help customize a program based on your workplace safety needs and culture.

How long does it take to complete the course(s)?


The Step Up Your Safety program has two streams of completion, it can be self-paced. This means that each participant moves through the learning material at a rate that matches his or her learning style, prior understanding of the topic, and time availability. Or it can be used to accompany a company’s larger safety program and schedule.

The program consists of six modules that each include a 6-8 minute video and a workbook (hard copy or digital) for the staff member to complete. Additionally, there is a guided discussion you can use for group settings. Each session could be completed in approximately 20 minutes depending on the amount of time you spend on the workbook or group guided discussion.

Some clients use the Step Up Your Safety Program as part of their annual safety training and use the six modules as bi-montly themes. The program is flexible to meet your organization's style and cadence.

Candace on Demand is a pre-recorded 45-minute presentation that you can play anywhere, anytime for as many times as you like in a 48-hour time period.

How does the LMS (learning management system work)?


Each employee gets their own code and account to view their videos and complete the course workbook. You can log out at any time and log in again later using your PIN and Password. The system will remember where you left off and start you there the next time you log in. There is no expiry to access the course. Larger organizations can get administrative access to view their teams’ status and completion.

In terms of engagement, some teams will call on Candace to kick-off the program with their teams through either an in-person keynote presentation, worksite and locations visits to engage with team members or a virtual call to help set the stage or deliver one of the six modules.
