Professional Bio

Steven St. Laurent’s specialty is safety training that doesn’t bore you to death in English and Spanish. He conducted his first training (in Spanish) for a Cement company across Northern Mexico in 2002. Since then he has conducted 100‘s of safety trainings for 1000’s of people in construction and manufacturing companies in over 30 states across the U.S., often for companies who have experienced a fatality.  

Steve is a Mechanical Engineer who worked in the field as an Energy Engineer for 3 international companies on design-build projects before becoming a Safety Trainer/Consultant. That work experience brought him to Mexico for 1 year, Sicily for 3 weeks, and Albuquerque for 7 months. He spent the rest of his time as a Field Engineer working in New England on projects such as power plant and other energy system upgrades at navy bases, college campuses, hospitals and other industrial facilities. Steve perfected his Spanish over a total of 2 years living in Mexico.

Steve currently lives in central Massachusetts with his beautiful bride and their 3 children.  He considers it an honor and a privilege to facilitate safety training as it is his passion.   

Finally, Steve also presents as a Keynote and Motivational Speaker for safety conferences, corporate meetings, roundtables and other events on topics such as “How to be a better trainer and not bore people to death”, “How to quickly bring your company from a failing or non-existent safety program to a passing and robust one”, “How to be a better Supervisor”, “How to have a clue regarding Cultural differences (Spanish/English)”, among other topics.  

If you wish to talk to more professional references of mine or of other trainers on my team, I will make them available to you. The background and training experience of my team of trainers is equally extensive & international, with 1000’s of Safety Trainings under our belt: OSHA 10’s and 30’s in Construction and Industry, First Aid/CPR/AED, as well as customized training on a wealth of topics. All training we provide involves customization. In addition to the OSHA 10-hr trainings, we offer a variety of customized trainings in English, Spanish and Portuguese on specific OSHA topics such as fall protection, LO/TO, Confined Space, Aerial, Scissor and Fork lifts, Respirators, HAZCOM, HAZWOPER 40-hr and much more.
