Thank you, Dave for providing one of several great workshops to our audience at the County 28th annual safety seminar. Your session on “How to Conduct an Incident Investigation” piqued additional interest in attendees wanting to learn more about doing the HOW. Great job!

Thank you for coming out Dave!  It was a pleasure meeting you.  Even though we have gone over this topic many times I believe our Foremen learned a lot from your presentation.
