    I like question 3, where you don’t make the answer easy by simply including “all of the above” as a possible answer.

    I remember hearing you speak at the SAFER meeting in Warwick, RI. I really enjoyed your presentation style. So many presentations are dry and sleep-inducing.

    You might be interested to know that I have an extensive safety training program, based on my many years as Manager of Safety Compliance for a General Dynamics division. I was an Authorized OSHA Trainer for 8 years, so I have all of the training materials, which I incorporated in my program, but in my own style. Would you be interested in hearing more? I’ll send you a copy of my Articles and Presentations sheet in another message.
