Why choose Convergence Learning?


Worker injuries and fatalities continue to be a serious issue in industrial workplaces. A new way of looking at safety is needed.

Safety development has reached a saturation point where no further regulation, training, and policy creation will see marked improvement. A different strategy is required. Without a new approach, worker fatality and injury rates will not improve. A culture that values safety will have reduced injuries and fatalities.


It is our mission to improve workplace safety by helping organizations develop a culture, narratives, and leadership that values and promotes safety as a key value.


We seek to change the way safety-sensitive organizations look at worker safety by re-examining concepts such as safety community, safety values, safety ethics, safety stewardship, and introducing the idea of a safety narrative and safety literacy to organizations’ workers and their lexicon.
