I am a certified safety professional with 30+ years of experience working with clients in the construction industry. I earned my bachelor’s degree in safety studies and I have been supporting efforts to develop and maintain safe work sites and safe work practices throughout my career. I am routinely on active construction sites and have a sound understanding of the applicable OSHA regulations, industry consensus standards, and custom and practice in the industry. I have worked as a safety professional in a variety of capacities during my career, visiting thousands of job sites during that time. This work entails (but is not limited to) developing and delivering safety programs, reviewing operations, monitoring work practices, procedures, and controls, monitoring compliance with OSHA and governmental standards, and monitoring adherence to applicable industry consensus standards including ANSI, ISO, and applicable corporate policies. Forklifts can be used to deliver a wide variety of materials, tools, and equipment to elevated work areas. This must be accomplished in an organized and competent manner employing safe work practices and procedures. These practices and procedures are well established within the applicable OSHA standards, as well as industry-recognized consensus standards. I have served as an expert on numerous cases involving the use of lifting equipment and fall protection.
