CANDACE CARNAHAN BIOGRAPHY

Candace Carnahan presents a new way to think about safety with wisdom and wit. Through the power of stories, she demonstrates how to use your voice – to see safety as an opportunity not just an obligation.

Having experienced a traumatic injury at the age of 21, Candace knows too well the impact it has not only on the worker but also on everyone around them.

For over 20 years Candace Carnahan has been taking the stage sharing stories to companies of all sizes – and already more than half a million people have been moved by her personal experience of injury, resilience, and strength.

The way she weaves safety seamlessly into storytelling that is relatable and memorable is what resonates and provokes real change in attitude and action.

Candace lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and is a frequent traveller to clients in the manufacturing, transportation, energy, and production industries.

The First Step

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Candace Carnahan has learned what she believes to a crucial life lesson the hard way: ‘The first step in not getting hurt is knowing that you can be.’ She believes that avoiding needless injuries through day-to-day life and activities can be achieved just by simply realizing that the potential for injury exists.

    Candace challenges the “invincibility factor” which, for her, is the most troubling hazard facing working youth – the belief that injuries won’t happen to them. In her one-hour presentation, Candace speaks about her typical life as a university student, working summers to pay for school in the fall, and how one step in the wrong direction changed the course of her life forever.

    Candace’s energy and enthusiasm is contagious, and through her many stories, she sends a message that reaches far beyond that of workplace health and safety. Candace encourages her audience to use their education, knowledge, experience, and awareness to expand on the importance of safety within their day to day lives. Candace Carnahan inspires her audiences to ‘stand up for safety’ (both figuratively and literally) and to ‘say something’ when they ‘see something.’

    EXPECTED OUTCOMES

    Reduction in recordable injuries, an empowered student body/workplace that is inspired to keep themselves and their loved ones/colleagues safe.

Testimonials

Candace’s message of safety, not only in workplace but in life generally, was both powerful and inspiring. She has a wonderful way of engaging with her audience that empowers them to take her call to action, ‘See Something. Say Something’ and truly make a difference. An hour with Candace Carnahan has the ability to change an organisation’s safety culture in a way that no safety campaign could ever do. Definitely the best investment any organisation can make.
