Corporate Safety Director
In his role as Corporate Safety Director, Dave works to create and improve a self-sustaining culture of safety at Performance Mechanical, Inc. (PMI). This includes purchasing and maintaining safety equipment; training employees in respiratory and fall protection, forklift and confined space safety, and Hazcom protocol; and performing respiratory fit tests. Dave is also responsible for managing injury investigations (root cause analysis), creating safety policies to protect employees and comply with client facility requirements, and hiring and managing on-site safety representatives.
Dave knows that in order to keep his teams safe, he must stay abreast of the latest in safety standards and advances. Therefore, he continues to enroll in courses to meet requirements by PICS and ISNetwork. He has also run and participated on safety committees in his previous positions at previous employers, always striving to enhance safety standards and results.
He is no stranger to the tasks and challenges of project management, estimating, and client management having held these responsibilities in positions since 1994. He brings this broad knowledge and scope to his current position and to his selection of continuing education, which has included training from TWIC; courses like OSHA 30 Hour; certification as an EPA Lead Renovator and LEED Green Associate; and classes in estimating and project management from U.C. Davis and HAZWOPR and other safety classes from the Carpenters Union, Associated General Contractors, and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company.
The Personal Side
Dave enjoys spending time with his three children and can often be found camping, at live music or sporting events, enjoying classic cars, and hitting the trail on his dirt bike.
