Thank you for visiting my site! My name is Jeremy Stiehl. Over the last several years I have built this website up in my free time in an effort to solve a personal pain point. The pain point was wanting an easy-to-use online library of safety materials I could use for “toolbox talks” and safety meetings.
In my first safety position out of college I was required to lead two safety meetings each day with the same crew who have heard a lot of the same safety messages over and over. Being new to safety was stressful enough let alone the feeling of not being prepared to talk to a seasoned crew. Many nights and weekends spent writing, a few hundred free and paid safety talks later, and tens of thousands of safety pros helped- here we are.
Some more background on me!
I graduated from Slippery Rock University with a B.S. in safety management and a B.A. in criminal justice. I earned my Associate Safety Professional certification in 2015 and I earned my Construction Health and Safety Technician certification in early 2018. I let my CHST go in 2020 due to not working full-time in construction safety. I earned my Certified Safety Professional certification in 2020.
I left my position in the environmental remediation industry in mid 2019 to work in the insurance industry that services the transportation industry as a Risk Management Associate. Being in the insurance industry allows me to see a variety of operations, meet many different people from various geographic areas, and the position allows me to be creative in helping our clients reduce their losses.
I created this website to provide resources for safety professionals or anyone who has safety responsibilities in their company. I also wanted a platform where I could learn as I researched for articles and created content. I am interested in business building and entrepreneurship, especially as it relates to the safety field so this website serves as a testing ground for those endeavors. I formed Innovative Safety Products LLC in May of 2017. This site’s information and products fall under that LLC.
I look to continue to build this site as well as other related websites and products in the future. I am interested in connecting with other like-minded individuals and business owners who serve the EHS field.
