   He is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis. After a thirty-four year-career as a financial and risk management executive with Southwestern Bell Corporation, he founded Safety Times in 1992.

   From 1992-2002, he was the editor and publisher of Safety Times, an off-the job safety publication for businesses and organizations. The publication was distributed to over 20,000 people.

  With all these readers, and additional readers from the Safety Times Reproducible Articles and Live Safely in a Dangerous World, we have never received one complaint regarding the material.

Live Safely in a Dangerous World Background

   Live Safely in a Dangerous World is the product of more than ten years’ research. Nearly all of the topics were published at least twice in the Safety Times Newsletter from 1992 through 2002.

   The information for each topic comes from many sources. Before publishing each topic in the newsletter, it was reviewed by at least two CSPs (Certified Safety Professionals), or by a CSP and a subject-matter expert. Children’s topics were reviewed by a representative of the Safe Kids Worldwide organization; boating topics by the United States Coast Guard; the chain-saw topic by a safety trainer for a chain-saw manufacturer, and so on.

   The circulation of the newsletter exceeded 20,000; pass-along readership, however, was considerably higher, as some recipients paid for the privilege of copying the material. Safety Times clients have included Alcoa, Avery Dennison, Boeing, Dow Corning, ExxonMobil, General Motors, Georgia-Pacific, Honeywell, SBC, Sprint, the U.S. Postal Service, and hundreds of other corporations and organizations.

   A leading independent publisher, Cypress House, edited the book.
