Avoids rising insurance costs

Helps prevent damage
to equipment and property

John’s Safety Story

When John made rank in the United States Air Force, he was given a choice. He could either serve as construction and general industry safety manager or work in a role he wouldn’t call his forte.

With 7 years of construction and general industry experience, John made the easy decision.

Not long after, John delivered a briefing to 500 construction workers. He used humor to help make the stories memorable. A couple years later, he was approached by someone who attended the briefing.  He asked if they could recall the moral of one of the tales?

“Yeah,” the audience member replied. “If you’re not authorized or trained to operate that piece of equipment, don’t operate it. Get the right person.”

John has been making safety stick ever since.

“John does a great job putting the concepts into action and demonstrates how a culture can function with the right support, commitment, practice, and beliefs.”
-L.M.
“Good common sense advice and ideas to operate safely. I enjoyed the personal stories that are relatable and helpful to remember the lessons taught.”
-R.A.
“John shares his wealth of experience to convince lax workers to step up and help each other avoid unrecoverable accidents.”
-N.D.
“My favorites are when he falls into a trench at night, and when his mother is saved by a Wonder Woman type heroine, on a Hawaii beach.”
-R.B.
