When Charlie tells his story of personal tragedy of suffering an injury while working on a job site, the audience sits in rapt attention as they are moved to new levels of awareness. “For fifteen of the twenty-seven years that I worked at Exxon, I thought, accidents don’t happen to me, they happen to the other guy,’” Charlie says. “Unfortunately, this is a common perception in many workplaces. But on a hot, humid day in August 1980 it happened to me,” he adds, explaining that in a work place accident he suffered  third-degree burns over 50% of his body. Where his clothing had burned off, the burns were to his bones.

 It was this life changing experience that lead Charlie to create an internationally recognized program on safety that has made him one of the most effective occupational and personal safety presenters in the world.  His DVD’s are mandatory in hundreds of safety training programs and orientations as well as OSHA required training.  

His presentation was “the most hard hitting mesmerizing presentiaton,” notes a member of the US Military. One father says that Charlie’s program “saved my son’s life.”

Charlie has that rare and unique ability to speak with ordinary words and conjure extraordinary images. His primary messages are "Safety is about going home at the end of the day, kissing your wife and hugging your kids. We are each responsible for our own safety,” he points out. They aren't new messages, but Charlie gives us a powerful new way of looking at them.

Charlie's message reaches and touches people at all levels in an organization from blue collar workers to the CEO and President. It is a universal message.
