Safety Storytellers: Michael Circle of Onward Energy
In this episode, Stacey is joined by Michael Circle of Onward Energy, a power generator with a portfolio of solar, wind, and gas generation projects in the U.S.
Michael, who is both an Environmental Health and Safety Specialist and a PR Specialist, and Stacey explore the following in this episode:
- Michael initially decided to become a safety professional because he heard that safety was “lucrative.” But after he attended his first ever OSHA class, he fell in love with safety.
- How even when we’re dealing with extremely serious topics — such as fall protection and electrical safety hazards — those of us in the safety profession can still find these topics exciting.
- Looking at safety as being a combination of various other trades, including law, medicine, and enforcement.
- Michael’s dad lost a finger in a work accident.
- What excites Michael most about the safety profession today, which includes implementing the relatively new 24 foot rule for fixed ladders and ladder protection systems.
