“People do not care how much you know until they know how much you care.” Theodore Roosevelt

My safety career started after an accident resulting in an amputation and a job opening for a new Safety Director. Not a good time to step into a new position, but I loved the work and made a career in doing what I felt was important work that affected people’s lives. 30 years later, I still love the work and especially enjoy helping workers and workplaces be more safe. But when things go wrong, and you need someone who is experienced and passionate about safety, look no further, you are in the right place.


  • Certified Safety Professional.
  • Authorized Construction OSHA Outreach Trainer.
  • Safety Director at Colgate Palmolive, Ichikoh Manufacturing, Kentucky Trailers, and Safety Specialist at Phillip Morris.
  • Safety consultant to many general industry, manufacturing, and construction companies.
  • Have conducted countless safety training sessions, inspections, accident investigations, and OSHA audits.
  • Reviewed too many written safety programs that were garbage so I developed my own which reflects OSHA’s recommended safety & health guidelines.
