Brad Hurtig

Inspiring Safer Workplaces

Presentation Overview: (from Brad)

Most everyone agrees that safety is important. After working a full day, everyone wants to go home safe. Even though there might be times where some of us feel safety can be annoying and frustrating. Having to do things in specific ways while safe procedures add extra steps and processes to a project. But I can tell you from first-hand experience that safety doesn’t hurt, accidents do.

  •  I’ll be sharing the events of my accident: How/why it happened
  • The things I’ve learned from my accident: Safety equipment can fail you, Take Time To Think, Communicate
  •  Finding A Way: Life can knock us down. How will you respond?

 Through personal stories, I will illustrate that we must Adapt and Persevere

Brad Hurtig grew up as a typical student-athlete in a small town in Northwest Ohio. Only days after finishing his sophomore year of high school, a devastating workplace related accident resulted in the amputation of both of Brad’s hands. Through hard work and determination, Brad soon rejoined his high school football team. His senior year, Brad led his team with 111 tackles and earned all-state honors -  all while playing with no hands. Now Brad is taking his powerful message of workplace safety to businesses and organizations across the country.
