The Day We Will Remember


"Safety is about more than protecting yourself. It is about protecting your coworkers, your friends, and your family from a life without you. We're lucky enough to forget our day-to-day, but when somebody is seriously injured, that's the day we will remember for the rest of our lives."

While I do share my own story during presentations, I also share those of 3 close friends and coworkers who learned valuable lessons through much more difficult circumstances than what I dealt with.


It may seem a little crazy for a grown man to show up to a classroom in full safety apparel. It’s not nearly as crazy as the story behind it.

Listening to Ricky’s Stories was like watching a talented seamstress take several pieces of material and sewing them together to make a beautiful quilt.
